Abstract

The controlled and continuous powder supply is one of the main preconditions for an efficient process of laser cladding, alloying and particle injection. Powder feeders available from thermal spraying are in general used for laser processing. They fulfill the typical requirements of laser surface treatments only incompletely. For this reason, a new powder feeding device was developed and tested for several applications.
