Background: As an important method of remanufacturing, laser cladding can be used to obtain the parts with specific shapes by stacking materials layer by layer. The formation mechanism of laser cladding determines the “Staircase effect”, which makes the surface quality can hardly meet the dimensional accuracy of the parts. Therefore, the subsequent machining must be performed to improve the dimensional accuracy and surface quality of cladding parts.
Methods: In this paper, chip formation, cutting force, cutting temperature, tool wear, surface quality, and optimization of cutting parameters in the subsequent cutting of laser cladding layer are analyzed. Scholars have expounded and studied these five aspects but the cutting mechanism of laser cladding need further research.
Results: The characteristics of cladding layer are similar to that of difficult to machine materials, and the change of parameters has a significant impact on the cutting performance.
Conclusion: The research status of subsequent machining of cladding layers is summarized, mainly from the aspects of chip formation, cutting force, cutting temperature, tool wear, surface quality, and cutting parameters optimization. Besides, the existing problems and further developments of subsequent machining of cladding layers are pointed out. The efforts are helpful to promote the development and application of laser cladding remanufacturing technology.
