Laser Cladding reviews the techniques and equipment, process modeling and control, and the physical metallurgy of alloying and solidification during laser cladding. The authors clarify the interconnections laser cladding has with CAD/CAM design; automation and robotics; sensors, feedback, and control; physics material science, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and powder metallurgy. As the first book entirely dedicated to the topic, it also offers a history of its development and a guide to applications and market opportunities. The book also compiles valuable information illustrated with real case studies based on the authors' experience.
