Alabama Laser Laser-Cladding Services and Systems

April 2009 Vol. 236 No. 4

Alabama Laser provides both laser-cladding services and systems.

The cladding process uses a laser to deposit a layer of material onto a substrate. Cladding enhances the properties of a surface and - with the right material choice - provides good wear and corrosion resistance. The company says this process is emerging as a strategic technique for repairing damaged components and also to improve the properties of base materials for surface protection.

Alabama Laser has provided products and services to the oil and gas industry for 29 years through another division - Metal Samples Corrosion Monitoring Products. 256-358-9055, als@alspi.com, www.alabamalaser.com.
