How to Use Laser Beams to Create Alloys
- 1). Clean the metal surface by blasting it with sand.
- 2). Dry the metal powder you will use to blast the material surface in an oven at 70 degrees Celsius for three hours to remove any water it has adsorbed.
- 3). Blow argon gas continually over the sample surface to avoid oxidization of the melted surface. Use the laser to continually feed metal powder to the surface of the metal you are treating.
