LPH-C | Laser cladding with metal powder

Laser cladding enables the precise coating of components. This predestines the process for repairs or the application of wear and corrosion protection. Laser cladding has also proven itself for additive manufacturing.

Function description

Laser cladding is an additive manufacturing process in which a metal coating is applied to a workpiece. The workpiece surface is melted locally with the aid of a laser, and a gas-powder mixture is fed in at the same time. At the heated point, the powder also melts and thus bonds with the surface of the workpiece. The LPH-C enables precise process control and thus a wide range of applications.

Areas of application

  • Laser cladding of various materials
  • Steel, titantium, nickel, aluminum alloys
  • Repair of complex parts and casting molds
  • Coating of wear parts
  • 3D-metal-printing


  • Adjustable track width by setting defocusing and powder nozzle.
  • Welding process independent of direction.
  • Targeted energy input and thus low thermal distortion of the component.
  • High material utilization rate.
  • High level of automation.
  • Easy to retool or upgrade within the LPH product family when additional functions are required.
  • Adaptable to customer needs: thanks to modular scapacs® system and expandability over the entire product life cycle.
