The article presents an overview on the advantages of laser metal deposition (LMD), a generative laser procedure. The workpiece properties can be aimed for improvement by systematically combining or refining materials with the use of LMD. In addition, LMD produces a metallurgical bond that permanently binds the deposited metal onto the base material, making the best possible adhesion.
