On April 7th, students from the University of Akron Corrosion Program visited ASB Industries to learn about a local company with international reach around the globe. The facility tour focused on explanations of component repair and enhancement surfacing to prolong the life of equipment and value of repaired equipment to OE specifications. Along with the tour, engineering students witnessed Thermal Spraying and Cold Spray with a highlight where students sprayed with the hand held high pressure cold spray equipment.
