Abstract: Modification of Aluminium surface by injecting, dispersing and melting TiB2 powder with the help of a laser beam promises to enhance tribological properties of Aluminium. The present work consists of making single lines and various overlapping lines of TiB2 powder on an Aluminium substrate using Nd: YAG laser and analysing their microstructures and hardness. The role of various processing parameters such as laser power, scanning speed, laser beam diameter, percentage of overlap, powder flow rate on laser cladding has been described. It is possible to make a clad layer of uniform thickness of 0.55 mm having hardness of 100 HV
