Other Cladding Materials – Tungsten Carbide, Inconel, Diamonds DLC Cladding LP specializes in diamond laser cladding with our proprietary diamond powder and encapsulated laser.
But, to ensure your tools and equipment meet the specifications of your particular application, we also offer cladding with tungsten carbide, Inconel, or combinations of materials.
Cladding with tungsten carbide or Inconel uses the same advanced techniques and encapsulated laser as our exclusive
diamond laser cladding process.
Automated computers are used to guide the laser over the workpiece as precise amounts of tungsten carbide or Inconel powder are dispersed.
As the laser moves over the workpiece the focal point of the laser creates a melt pool on its surface. When the dispersed powder comes in contact with the hot surface, the powder melts and mixes with the melt pool.
Then, as the laser moves away the base metal and the powder cool rapidly, resulting in a strong metallurgical bond with minimal dilution and a very thin heat affected zone.
For years, tungsten carbide has been the gold-standard for hard-facing solutions because of its exceptional heat and abrasion resistance.
Its exceptional physical and chemical properties make it the optimal coating for tools and equipment in many different industries and for
many different applications.
Contact us today to see if tungsten carbide is the right option for your tools and equipment.
Inconel is an austenitic nickel-chromium based superalloy that provides excellent corrosion resistance.
This superalloy works exceptionally well for applications in high pressure and heat.
Contact us today to see if Inconel is your best cladding option for your specific application.
Diamond is the hardest element known to man.
Previous cladding techniques have been unable to harness diamond’s abrasion resistance because the cladding process itself altered the chemical structure of the diamond.
DLC Cladding LP has the proprietary rights to a diamond laser cladding process developed in Belgium that preserves the chemical structure of diamond during the cladding process.
Using this cladding process, we’re able to increase the abrasion resistance of your tools and equipment by as much as 6X over tungsten carbide.
With this amount of abrasion resistance and durability our clients experience significantly reduced costs at the well site.
Diamond laser cladding is mainly dedicated for deep drilling applications.
