Laser cladding, also known as LMD or DLD is an additive technique for repair and manufacturing of metallic components.

The powder used as the filler material is injected through a coaxial nozzle to be melted by the laser, thereby generating a coating on the metallic parent substrate.

For this process, we use a high power laser connected to a robot or CNC system.

In Tecnoclad we have a wide experience in the optimization and development of this process and we can offer you the best solution for your final application.



  • Minimum heat-affected zone. Controlled and localized heat input.
  • Low dilution, maintaining a high purity in the deposited material without altering its properties.
  • Low part distortion.
  • Thickness controlled coatings (0,5-1,5 mm/layer). High-thickness multilayer coatings are also available.
  • Thin microstructures with high mechanical properties are obtained.
  • Coatings with 100% density.
  • Strong metallurgic bond between coating and substrate.
  • High precision and reproducibility (Automated process).



  • Wear resistant coatings.
  • Corrosion resistant coatings
  • High temperature coatings
  • Processing of parts with specific surface                                                  properties in specific zones.
  • Reconstruction and multilayer parts manufacturing.
  • Repair of parts due to wear.
  • Repair of parts due to corrosion.
  • Repair of parts due to machining faults.


  • Cobalt based alloys (Stellites, Ultimet, Tribaloy …).
  • Nickel based alloys (Inconel 625, Inconel 718, Hastelloy …).
  • Stainless steels (ie. AISI 316, AISI 431, AISI 420 …).
  • Carbon steels.
  • Tool steels.
