Electron beam cladding is beneficial for the resulting material properties and productivity.
Controlled layer thickness:
The precise electron beam properties controls energy density and distribution and thus the cladding layer thickness with powder as additive material.
Defined material properties:
Due to the exact energy input and layer thickness, the hardness and corrosion resistance are controllable.
Refined surface and structure of cladding layer:
Vacuum conditions of electron beam cladding positively impacts surface and structure.
Fully automated cladding:
A fully automated electron beam cladding precisely repeats and fully traces the parameters per layer and thus securely controls and documents the complete process per workpiece.
Cladding could be perceived as an additive manufacturing method. However, the focus is to modify the material properties of a given workpiece shape by adding a single or few material layers.
