Laser Cladding Solutions

Preco manufactures systems for the deposition of powder metal or wire onto a base metal (part) to metallurgical bond the dissimilar materials. Preco cladding systems can be used for round or flat parts up to 30 meters standard (larger on request). We offer both Cartesian platforms or robotic based systems.


  • Tool and Die
  • Valves and Seals
  • Turbine Blades
  • Drive Shafts
  • Automotive Components
  • Cylinders for Mining

Increasing life span.

Laser cladding increases the life span for components by improving corrosion and wear properties. Laser cladding can be precisely placed with minimal heat input and distortion. The laser clad has low porosity and a fine microstructure.

Automotive components, tools in the oil and gas industry, cylinders for mining, and tool and die all benefit from the wear protection provided by this process.


  • Stainless Steel
  • Carbon Steel
  • Nickel Based
  • Cobalt Based
  • Hard Particle Composits


  • Laser Additive Manufacturing/ Laser Cladding

Features & Benefits

Just some of the many benefits of buying a Preco laser machine.

Vision System 

Automatic registration with single or dual cameras for X-Y-Ø positioning of the cut pattern to a specific mark or visual material features

Vacuum Hold Down

Vacuum sheet hold down provides excellent positional stability during processing, does not mark or scratch sheet allows for management and handling of vaporized outgas produced by laser cutting

XY Table 

DC servo motors are driven on a high speed, low mass two-axis motion system for accurate processing of large sheet products

Fixed Beam Moving XY Table

Symmetrical and consistent laser beam cutting and scribing quality over the full range of the motion system

PC Windows® Based Controler 

User-friendly Windows-based PC based controller includes management of laser parameters, processing database and cycle time management

XY Motion System and Screw Protection

The robust metal channel covers to provide protection of the motion system rails and screws
