Cold Spray Rebuilding & Repairs
Cold spray coatings can provide surface enhancement for a wide range of industries and applications. Cold spray coatings can be used to repair and refurbish scratched, dented, or otherwise worn or damaged components and return them to their original dimensions.
Cold spray repair is an effective and cost-saving alternative to replacing worn parts. More durable materials can be applied over the original substrate to enhance the performance of refurbished parts and to extend their working life.
Advantages of Cold Spray Repair
Cold spray technology is the ideal method of restoring damage metal parts and components in industrial equipment. Cold spray repair is fast and efficient, and, unlike welding and many other repair processes, causes no thermal stress that can further damage fragile parts.
Adding a solid layer of high wear material over the part’s original material of construction is an effective way to improve equipment performance without the expense of new part production. Manufacturing entire parts from these specialty materials can be very expensive, making cold spray repair an excellent cost-saving option.
Further advantages of cold spray repair include:
- The ability to perform localized or patch repairs
- On-site field repair using the Portable 2000 System, eliminating the need for disassembly/reassembly or complete teardown
- Ease of scalability from the coupon level
- Reduced waste thanks to salvaged defective parts and reclaimed field-returned parts
Cold spray can be used to repair wear, erosion, corrosion, cavitation, and other forms of damage.
Cold Spray Repair Applications
Parts and components for a wide array of industries and applications can be effectively repaired using cold spray technology. Examples include:
- Sputter targets
- Braze layers
- Transmission components
- Fan rotor blades
- Helicopter rotor masts
- Snap ring grooves
- Sea water pumps
- Motor casings
- Metal hydraulic tubing
- Gas turbine hot gas path components
- Magnesium substrates
- Conductive layers
- Additive manufacturing
