Laser Cladding Services” LaserHeat Pinpoint Treating is a high-powered laser pinpoint heat-treating process designed to extend the lifecycle of critical parts. LaserHeat enhances the metallurgical properties of a part within a specific critical wear area by providing surface hardening to a localized area without altering the chemistry of the entire part. The process offers advantages over typical flame and induction-hardening methods that require the part to be heated, such as low thermal input, minimal distortion, higher part processing speeds and accurate case depths. The LaserHeat pinpoint surface hardening service can be applied to many high-wear components, such as spindles, transmission shafts, pump shafts, sleeves, locomotive engine cylinders, hydraulic cylinder rams, mixing paddles and other offshore and onshore components that are exposed to volatile or stressful environments.
