Plasma deposition

Overview

Plasma deposition via the thermal spray techniques allow coating materials to be rapidly deposited onto structures. Coating materials are wire fed, heated to melting or near melting point and then accelerate them towards the substrate structure. Layers of material are built up with multiple passes to achieve the required coating thickness

Advantages

  • Rapid material deposition
  • Controlled coating thickness

Used on

  • Engine blade fabrication
  • Engine blade repairs
