In the field of surface engineering, cladding or overlay welding is a group of coating methods used in manufacturing fusion-bonded thick metallic and metal matrix composite (MMC) coatings on a wide variety of metallic base materials with varying degree of deposition rate, dilution and heat input. Growing demands for more material-, energy- and cost-effective overlay welding processes as well as sustainable solutions for performance-critical applications have boosted to develop methods that are capable of producing low diluted and fusion-bonded single layer coatings with high deposition rates. Such novel cladding methods include for instance laser-based high power laser cladding, coaxial hot-wire laser cladding, laser-arc hybrid cladding, non-laser-based Cold Metal Transfer (CMT) cladding and methods that utilize high intensity infrared (IR) light. This paper introduces some of such highly innovative cladding techniques and highlights some microstructural and geometrical features, abrasion and sliding wear, and wet corrosion properties of Fe-, Ni- and Co-based metallic coatings manufactured by novel laser and CMT cladding methods. The research results evidence that with the choice of optimal processing parameters, novel cladding techniques are capable of manufacturing high performance weld overlays with the properties equivalent or near to corresponding wrought alloys and reference overlays with net deposition rates of approximately 5 kg/h and more. Overall, the presented work suggests that discussed methods have high potential in surfacing of new and remanufacturing of service-damaged surfaces in high value components, in building up complex features on existing components and also in near net shape additive manufacturing of functional 3D objects.
