Diamond Laser Cladding Applications

Laser Cladding Applications

 

“The components that DLC cladded applying the diamond laser technology proved significantly more wear resistant than any other form of laser cladding we have used by other providers. We were able to make some relevant comparative data in the same well and same formation in a long section. It was revealed that the diamond laser cladding provided very impressive results in terms of wear resistance and protection…(on) components that were in the hole for 280 rotating hours. Other providers with a tungsten carbide hardfacing only achieved 80 rotating hours before wear occurred.”

“This is a huge cost saving and we look forward to continued utilization of this process and continued advancements by DLC.”

In most applications, diamond laser cladding can replace the tungsten carbide and other cladding that was previously used to provide abrasion resistance and hardfacing. Typical applications for diamond laser cladding include:

  • Drill and coring bits
  • Stabilizers – Non-mag, motor stabilizers, thin wall stabilizers
  • MWD & LWD tool components
  • Reamer bodies
  • Wear bands on BHA components
  • Drilling motor parts – Fixed bend housing, flow restrictors
  • Agricultural equipment
  • Axle housings
  • Bearing sleeves
  • Drilling and blazing tools
  • Gears
  • General industrial equipment valves
  • Heat treating
  • Impellers
  • Mandrels
  • Nozzles
  • Pump components – Housing, impellers, shafts
  • Stators
  • Mining applications
