Abstract: Laser cladding has gained increasing popularity both in industry and in academic research. This work describes an investigation of laser cladding of mild steel substrate with Colmonoy 88 nickel-based hardfacing powder. Emphasis is placed on the effect of the translation speed (TS) of the laser beam and the powder feed rate (PFR) on the physical and microstructural qualities of the clad layer. The results on the profile of single clad pass, extent of dilution, surface hardness and the microstructures produced by different cladding conditions are presented and discussed, through which the optimum cladding parameters for maximum hardness of the clad material are identified.
