The paper summarizes the result of laser cladding experiments design to observe the influence of single track overlap. The system combining solid state disc laser with power up to 5,3 kW and cladding head with coaxial powder feeding was used. Powders used in experiment were stainless steel 316 L and Stellite 6. In previous work the single track geometry was discussed, now the different values of single track overlap were tested. The goal of the work is to determine the influence of overlap to coating properties and choose suitable overlap for further experiment. The geometry and mechanical properties of final coatings is discussed.Keywords: Laser cladding, stainless steel, Stellite 6, overlap, Clad geometry
