Laser Cladding In Situ Tungsten Carbide Reinforced Ferrous Matrix Surface Composites


Article Preview

Tungsten carbide cermets coating on carbon steel were fabricated by laser clad cooperation combustion synthesis method. The microstructure, phase, element distribution and microhardness have been analyzed with the aid of SEM, XRD, EDS, EPMA and microhardness-tester. It is shown that the coating consisted of WC, CW3, W2C, WCx, and FeNi3. The results of hardness measurement showed that the hardness was superior to substrate. Analyze the effect of different laser power and different laser scanning speed on the quality of the laser cladding surface, the surface quality gets better with the increasing of the laser power, and gets better with the reducing of the scanning speed.
