The Cold Spray Process: Fundamentals and Applications
VRC Metal Systems, LLC is a leader in high-pressure cold spray equipment and process development, with a focus on lightweight capability that can meet the demands of research and development, application and process prototyping, and even high throughput manufacturing.
Cold spray is a unique process for consolidating powdered materials into dense, structural deposits which can be used to repair and maintain fielded hardware, apply new coatings or features to new and existing hardware, or even build entire parts additively.
VRC’s cold spray equipment is uniquely designed to be used with high accuracy automation, such as industrial robotics or machine motion systems, or can be used by hand to rapidly repair and modify existing equipment. In addition to cold spray equipment manufacturing, VRC also specializes in integration of automation, cold spray materials and process development, short or extended onsite support to help customers rapidly achieve an ROI, and field repair services.
This presentation will focus on the technology and science behind cold spray deposition, the roll VRC plays within this technology space, some of the latest developments in equipment and processes related to cold spray, and many general and specific applications of the technology. Also discussed will be the many ways VRC has used to help address the cold spray needs of commercial companies, the government repair and overhaul community, and educational institutions.
