A unique advantage of the diode laser-based surface modification processes is that the output beam can conform to the shape of the surface requiring processing and enable an extremely high throughput. The laser-based process offers superior overall quality, reduced heat input, minimal part distortion, and better clad process control. As a result, a finer grain structure and smoother surface morphology leading to better corrosion resistance is produced with diode lasers. AKELA's fiber-coupled laser diode module ALC-808-100000 is a good choice for such applications.
