Article Preview

The optimization research of process parameters for big power Laser cladding valve parts, is a research focus of modern surface hardening technology. The article discussed in detail for solving the optimum process parameters of Laser cladding for the selection approach of strategy of genetic algorithm, the quantitative relationship model was established between process parameters and the valve parts property using neural network method , which process parameters are laser power (P), scanning speed (V), powder feeding rate (G), scan spacing (D) and thickness ( ) etc., the best configuration program of Genetic Algorithm control parameters has been obtain by means of the parameters encoding、initial group setting、fitness function design,genetic operation design and algorithm control parameters setting. The optimization of process parameters is obtained to fit the Laser cladding technology by using genetic algorithm toolbox in the MATLAB environment, and the optimization goal of the valve parts property has also been achieved. Practice has proved that the optimal process parameters are correct by the genetic algorithm , and has a very good production practice guide.
