Laser surface treatment is a technique which provides a new way of producing wear resistant subsurfaces whose caracteristics can be altered to suit the specific problem. By using the different possibilities, like laser alloying or laser cladding, tool life can be prolonged on the one hand to improve the wear resistance and on the other hand to repair worn tools.
