On the example of glass forming equipment, the surfaces of which must have high wear resistance during repeated contacts with molten glass, a study was made of laser cladding of nickel based alloys on a substrate of gray cast iron. In study the shapes of individual tracks are investigated with varying laser radiation power, processing speed and powder feed rate. The influence of technological parameters on the width and height of the clad is shown. A similarity is found between the two principles of measuring the dilution through linear dimensions and the areas of track in cross section. A high correlation between dilution and laser radiation power over a wide range of speeds has been established, which has made it possible to develop a scheme of control laser cladding process with achieving a low level of dilution in order to minimize the heat effect zone (HAZ).
