Research on Cladding Nickel on Copper Crystallizer Using Laser Metal Deposition Technique
To increase the strength and erosion resistance of Copper Crystallizer, the system based on Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) process was proposed to clad nickel-based alloy on its surface. With the optimal processing parameters ascertained by large numbers of experiments, the crystallizer was clad nickel-based alloy. The morphology and the microstructures of the cladding layers and bonding interface were analyzed by energy dispersive spectrometer and scanning electronic microscopy. The result shows that the bonding interface realizes the metallurgic and tight bonding.
