The EasyCLAD systems solution is designed for repair and direct manufacturing of metal parts. This technology was firstly developed by IREPA LASER, a French institute specialized in laser and then commercialiezed by the company BeAM, the spin-off of IREPA.

Metallic powders are injected into the CLAD nozzle to form a uniform jet. The powders melt and fuse as they move across the laser beam, resulting in a uniform and dense deposit whose technical properties are akin to parts produced by processes of forging and founding. The deposited material is protected locally against oxidation by a neutral gas.

Several types are now avaible: UnitCLAD, MobileCLAD, Magic.
