EQUIPMENT PROTECTION AND REPAIR WITH LASER CLADDING

Equipment subject to huge stress during daily use, such as high-performing drilling tools, needs some protection to reach its full service life. Equipment deployed across Australia’s oil and gas industry is subject to wear and corrosion while operating under difficult environmental conditions and exposed to the corrosive effects of crude oil and natural gas.

A Laserline diode laser for cladding can economically and effectively refurbish or repair the drilling tools, oil and gas tanks or large spindles, rotors or pivot shafts used in a range of industries. Where corrosion or wear has occurred, the part is repaired using a highly controlled laser beam with the powder directed down the nozzle, where it is melted then cools quickly, causing minimal heat impact on both the part’s surface and the substrate while forming an effective bond.

QSP Engineering in Loganholme, south of Brisbane has been operating for 40 years, specialising in all facets of metal spraying and machining. It has successfully introduced a Laserline diode laser that has enabled it to build demand for services driven by the results it is able to achieve of extending the operating life of large and expensive equipment.

Laserline’s diode laser enables it to achieve excellent adhesion, high precision, almost no porosity, limited crack formation, a high degree of hardness and low deformation, and in most cases the created surface requires no further processing.

“Our clients recognise the benefits we bring to improving the life of their equipment, using the Laserline system, often beyond what was originally indicated,” QSP Engineering Managing Director, Neville Brokenshire says. “The skill base in our team means we can even offer a 24 hour breakdown service which I have to say is greatly appreciated.”
