The article discusses various uses of laser cladding in different industries from around the world. It notes that a cladding laser is focused and moved over the part while a powder feeder transports powder to a special nozzle aiming at the melting zone. It says that new laser technology and materials break barriers enabling new coatings and often are replacing conventional technologies. It also cites some examples of cladding technology which are currently used by industries as of June 2009.
