Technical Talk on Cold Spray Technology for Repair Application
Associate Professor Dr. Liu Erjia
School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering,
College of Engineering,
Nanyang Technological University (NTU)
Event is now CONFIRMED on 24 April 2019, Wednesday.
Cold spray is attracting increasing interest as a coating, repair and additive manufacturing process across a large number of industry sectors. Recent advances in equipment, coupled with novel approaches to the manufacturing and metallurgy of the materials employed in cold spray are encouraging the development of load bearing applications for AI, Fe, Ni and Ti alloy components.
Coatings and surface engineering: addressing the needs of industry
Water repellence; lightning conduction; increased abrasion resistance – all properties which can be imparted to a material through the use of coatings and surface engineering.
The complex castings made of difficult-to-weld alloys used in aircraft structures can easily suffer superficial damage, either during their production as a result of casting defects or mismachining, or during service as a result of wear and corrosion.
Alongside surface engineering for repairs, the aerospace sector also needs durable anti-icing and anti-fouling coatings, improved bulk materials for aircraft leading edges, thermally resistant coatings and advanced composite materials for aircraft pipelines.
Construction & Built Environment
The construction industry is always seeking improved ways to repel moisture, limit the impact of fouling and preserve dimensional stability, appearance and insulation performance.
