The ettective application of laser cladding to industrial components has required significant improvements in the process technology, particularly in the techniques for depositing the hardtacing alloy while manipulating the component and laser beam. Advances in equipment such as dynamic powder feeders are reviewed together with the ettects of process parameters on cladding quality. Examples of industrial applications are given.
