"Pruna Industries LMD Cladding technology" is used to create wear and corrosion-resistant coatings that are 100% dense and metallurgically bonded to the substrate. The LMD cladding process inputs minimal heat to the part compared with PTA, TIG and MIG weld processes. LMD provides very low dilution between the coating and substrate and allows for fine deposit microstructures, precise control of the coating thickness and reduced distortion into the base part. For wear resistance, a variety of nickel, cobalt, and carbide-based powders can be used.
Pruna Industries LMD Part Repair technology can be used to rebuild damaged or worn areas of valuable machine components, dies or molds. LMD produces 100% dense, metallurgically bonded features to the damaged part, with layer thickness from less than 1 mm and up, thus enabling a variety of repair applications that require minimal post-process machining. .

Laser hardening is a method aimed at improving component wear behaviour. During laser hardening, also known as surface layer hardening, the energy from the laser beam is applied directly to the component surface. ... Self-quenching is produced as a martensitic structure is formed and the hardening layer is cooled.
