Revolutionize your Component Repairs: Exploring the Power of Cold Spray

Join us for an exclusive webinar introducing our groundbreaking Joint Industry Project (JIP) focused on the innovative use of cold spray technology for component repairs. This project aims to revolutionize the way we approach repairing damage caused by corrosion, wear, and foreign object impacts.

Even seemingly minor damages can result in costly and wasteful removal of components from service. Stockholding or taking assets out of service for the manufacturing of new components not only incurs expenses but also has a significant environmental impact due to energy consumption and associated CO2 emissions during the repair process.

Traditional fusion and weld-based repair techniques involve introducing heat to the material microstructure, leading to undesirable degradation of mechanical properties. Moreover, materials like aluminum, magnesium, and titanium pose challenges for weld-based repairs due to their high oxygen sensitivity, often necessitating the use of inert environments. Additionally, weld-based repairs create residual stresses that can distort parts or reduce their fatigue life.

Another commonly employed technique involves the use of polymer fillers such as epoxy for repairs. However, these materials offer limited mechanical properties, a restricted upper-temperature limit, and a limited repair lifespan.

Embrace the Cold Spray Advantage

Our upcoming Joint Industry Project, "Improving and Industrialising Cold Spray Repair," seeks to explore the potential of cold spray as an alternative solution. Cold spray repairs require little to no heat input, offer exceptional flexibility across diverse applications, enable high deposition rates for speedy repairs, and can effectively repair even oxygen-sensitive materials without the usual drawbacks.

Cold spray technology shows immense promise in industries ranging from aerospace, construction, and oil and gas to rail, defense, and more. This project will pioneer new approaches to cold spray repair, enhance deposit performance, and expand the range of materials that can be effectively repaired.

Why Join Our Joint Industry Project?

We cordially invite companies to participate in this transformative project and gain access to cutting-edge techniques for improved cold spray deposition and extended component lifetimes. By joining, you will receive valuable insights into the tools used to monitor and control the process, instilling confidence in cold spray as an efficient and repeatable repair solution.

By becoming a part of this project, you will gain access to independent datasets to inform your decision-making processes. Additionally, you will benefit from repair frameworks, guideline documents, proven quality assurance (QA) practices, and non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques that can significantly reduce costs and expedite the adoption of cold spray within commercial environments.

Your participation in this project empowers you to influence the research direction, tailoring it to address your specific challenges. Furthermore, the cost of this groundbreaking research will be shared among JIP subscribers, ensuring all participants receive access to the final report.

Join us for this enlightening webinar to discover more about this pioneering research. We eagerly await your presence as we embark on this transformative journey together.
