In High-North mining, oil & gas, offshore and metal industries face large challenges in wear, corrosion, fatigue and excessive energy consumption. To address these needs, novel cost-effcient and environmentally friendly surfacing and additive manufacturing technologies based on cold-arc and laser hybrid metal deposition techniques are developed. Development, adoption and commercialisation of high productivity deposition techniques enable: 1) Fabrication of low diluted and fusion bonded coatings with enhanced wear and corrosion properties with low friction and anti-icing properties, 2) Fabrication of large near net-shape 3D metal objects with 30-40% more weight efficient structures compared with conventional manufacturing techniques.
