Laser alloying/cladding nozzles that were examined, with the purpose of alloying and cladding in any direction and at any angle of inclination, were described in this paper. An annular nozzle, a venturi nozzle, and a multiple injector nozzle were characterized. Evaluation of these nozzles were carried out using 304-L stainless steel, 310-S stainless steel, nickel, and chromium powders. The angle of divergence from the nozzles by the powder can be regulated for up to 2 cm as demonstrated by preliminary results. The speed at which the powder hits the substrate can also be manipulated via the flow rate of the transporting gas.
