Precision Machinery LLC’s PM-CLADD Laser Process can be applied to complex geometric shapes of OEM products to protect them against highly abrasive and corrosive wear

Our Definition of product Enhancement

PM-CLADD product enhancement program is how we partner with customers and other engineers, using our specific area of expertise in metallurgy and powder coatings technology, to help make new and old products last longer and perform better. We help ensure that they are built to last.

The products we enhance are your key components that are exposed to highly abrasive and highly corrosive environments.

Processes We Perform

  • Hard facing
  • Laser Cladding
  • Laser Heat Welding
  • Pre-Machining
  • Post Finishing

The kind of Products PM-CLADD can enhance

We can enhance any critical, high wear part which needs special treatment to maximize its performance and extend the working life cycle. PM-CLADD is a specialized process that involves our engineering department communication with your manufacturing engineers.

High velocity Oxygen Fuel Flame Spraying

Advantages:

  • Very dense coatings
  • Excellent bonding
  • Minimal metallurgical changes
  • Minimal temperature effects

In the high velocity oxygen Fuel flame spraying process, powder is introduced axially into a chamber in which a gas flame is constantly burning under high pressure. The exhaust gas exits through an expansion nozzle which produces a high velocity gas stream. The Powder particles are heated in this gas stream and transferred by; it with high kinetic energy to the surface of the work piece. Forming a dense coating with excellent bonding properties, Due to the moderate transfer of heat to the powder particles and to the work piece, which remains relatively cool, there is little metallurgical change to the sprayed material and the work piece.

Atmospheric Plasma Spraying

Advantages:

  • High quality and dense coating ideal for high melting-point materials

In the plasma spraying process powder is softened or melted in the plasma gas stream, which also transfers the particles to the work piece. The plasma arc is not transferred to the work piece, it is contained within the plasma torch between an axial electrode and a water cooled nozzle, The process is operated in normal atmosphere, in a shielding gas stream (e.g.Argon),in a vacuum or under water, due to the high temperature of the plasma gas stream the plasma spray process is especially suitable for spraying high melting-point metals as well as their oxides and carbides.
