Abstract

This paper shows laser cladding using WC-Co on low carbon steel and the microslructural characteristics of the resulting coating. It also analyses wear behaviour for different load and velocity conditions through a P-V diagram . 1 Introduction The increasing demands on mechanical elements for higher pressure, temperature and load resistance usually involve increasing the demands on the materials used to manufacture them too. New technologies are, therefore, being developed to minimise the effects of friction, wear, corrosion, radiation, etc. on such elements. One of the methods used to improve the materials surface is thermal spraying. It consists of spraying a coating, made of different materials, onto a base material. The thickness of the coati
