The paper summarizes the results of first series of laser cladding experiments. New system combining the solid state disc laser with power up to 5.3 kW and cladding head with coaxial powder feeding was used. The powder used in experiments was Stellite 6. The experiment was design to observe the influence of main processing parameters including laser power, processing speed and powder feeding rate. The geometry and mechanical properties of single pass clad was inspected. The goal of the work was to discover possibilities and limitation of the new cladding system and to find optimal process parameters for following experiments.
