Laser hardening

The result consists in the development of a laser hardening technique for the part selected in the project. A process window was estimated und some trials on round samples were performed. This was done using a line focus and a fibre-coupled diode laser. The effect of shielding gas was also investigated and a theoretical model was developed for the extrapolation of the hardness depth and width, derived from known data on different speeds and laser power.
