  • Substrate: duplex steel
  • Deposit: tungsten carbide / Stellite mixture

Abrasive blade tip protection of gas turbine blades

Developing and investigating an effective, thermodynamically-stable chromised SiC abrasive coating for gas turbine blades

  • Substrate: nickel alloy
  • Deposit: chromised SiC

Turbocharger turbine blade reconstruction

Developing, programming, and five-axis simultaneous laser cladding of blade tips

  • Substrate: IN713
  • Deposit: IN625
