Thermal Spray Case Studies
Magnesium Repair on Light Weight Aerospace Components
Reason to Consider Surfacing
Magnesium components are difficult to repair due to heat sensitive corrosion reaction.
Limited repair options cost the aerospace industry a stockpile of unusable components and the high cost of replacement parts.
High Pressure Cold Spray Process (HpCS) using Aluminum feedstock to repair worn areas can be easily machined to OEM specifications.
- Allow stockpile of expensive worn components to be repaired
- High pressure cold spray (hpcs) has notably superior microstructure and performance characteristics compared to low pressure cold spray systems
- Components can be repaired multiple times
