iPROTECT Series for Laser Cladding of Inner Diameters (ID)

iPROTECT Process PreheatingLaser Cladding of inner diameters (ID) is an exciting new technology that allows our customers to now expect the same high quality coating properties on the inside of their parts as on the outside. The iPROTECT process is designed for use with ALL our powders and offers:

  • A completely dense and metallurgical bonded protective layer
  • Iron pick up in the coating surface of less than 5% for all typical corrosion resistant alloys
  • A Hardness of more than 3000 HV with the Super M1 Spherical Tungsten Carbide powder
  • Exceptional metallurgical bonding between clad layer and base material with minimized heat-affected zone

Layer Cross SectionCoating Dimensions:

  • Standard width single weld bead:  .200” – .330” (5.0 mm – 8.5 mm)
  • Minimum width single weld bead:  .024” (0.6 mm)
  • Thickness per single clad layer:  .010” to .080” (0.25 mm to 2.0 mm)
  • Typically recommended thickness per single layer is .060” (1.5 mm)

iPROTECT layers can be stacked for material build-up and increased wear protection.
