Material Development Facility

In 2000, Cold Spray activities began in cooperation between Linde Group, ASB Industries Inc., CRP Automationstechnik AG and Germany's University of the Federal Armed Forces. In a relatively short time, the newly founded company CGT Cold Gas Technology GmbH developed and launched proven production systems for Cold Spray. At the end of 2002, the first industrial user produced automotive components allowing benefits of this promising process by applying pure copper coatings to aluminum heat sinks.

The latest developments in Cold Spray have led to process optimization using standard powders with high deposition efficiency. With Impact Innovations 5/11 High Pressure System, the Cold Spray process can compete commercially with any other coating technology on the market. Using cost-effective nitrogen as the process gas, mechanical coating properties - which compare to those of solid materials - can be achieved.

Cold Spray will continue to reveal new coating possibilities, including metallic materials and metal, ceramics or plastic composites. More than twenty new applications - which were never before considered within the context of Thermal Spraying - have already been implemented.

Cold Spray Technologies: Research, Development and Application Studies

Methods of Making Molybdenum Titanium Sputtering Plates and Targets - using High Pressure Cold Spray Process
November 2, 2010 - H.C. Stark, Inc.

Molybdenum titanium sputter targets are provided. In one aspect, the targets are substantially free of the β(Ti, Mo) alloy phase. In another aspect, the targets are substantially comprised of single phase β(Ti, Mo) alloy. In both aspects, particulate emission during sputtering is reduced. Methods of preparing the targets, methods of bonding targets together to produce large area sputter targets, and films produced by the targets, are also provided. Read more…
