AbstractLaser cladding of high performance tool steel on a cheap steel substrate can significantly improve mechanical performance of high-value tooling and extend their life with relatively low cost. In this paper, an Nd:YAG laser was used to deposit high vanadium CPM-9V tool steel on pre-hardened H13 steel substrate to improve its wear resistance for potential automotive tooling applications. Process-induced microstructure and residual stresses in the clad were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), microhardness tester and hole-drilling method, and effects of post-cladding tempering on its microstructure evolution, residual stresses and mechanical properties were investigated as well.
