The act of changing a material’s surface qualities by manipulating its texture and roughness is known as laser surface texturing, or LST. The surface micro patterns are produced by laser ablation using the laser beam.The use of laser beam techniques to alter the surface characteristics of materials.
In addition to other surface treatments like spraying or electroless plating, laser surface modification technology also includes laser transformation hardening, laser solution strengthening, laser remelting strengthening, laser shock peening (LSP), laser glazing, laser surface alloying, laser cladding, and composite strengthening.
In terms of flexibility, ease of use, and process economy, the laser-based surface modifying method is suitable for changing metallic surfaces. Surface hardening, melting, alloying, cladding, and texturing are some examples of laser surface modification.
The Global Surface Modification Laser System market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Development of Laser Surface Modification Technology.High-energy density laser beams are used in the laser surface modification technique to quickly process the local vulnerable and consumable areas of components.
This can produce the desired performances on material surfaces and significantly increase the service life of the components. Several industries, including aerospace, petrochemical, energy, transportation, and metallurgy, have successfully used laser surface modification technologies.
The technical characteristics, application status, and an analysis of the current issues are introduced for three common laser surface modification technologies—laser shock processing, laser quenching, and laser cladding.
Additionally, it suggests the main directions for future research, including the preparation of special alloy materials, multi-energy-field composited laser surface modification, on-site laser remanufacturing, laser shock processing with controlled shape and performance, intelligent laser surface modification, and preparation of laser surface micro-structure.
In an effort to offer examples for the development of laser surface modification technologies in China, some additional development suggestions are made in the areas of government guidance, domestic innovation, industrial chain improvement, establishment of the quality evaluation standards system, and talent training.
