Engine Repair using Cold Spray
VRC Metal Systems Cold Spray Technology is a phenomenal and groundbreaking change in thinking in Metal Repair, Additive Manufacturing and Production. Modern manufacturing systems operated by OEMS worldwide are moving to this technology. The first investments in R + D obtained proof of concept and manufacturing experience leading to certification and qualification by the OEMs for
- repair; and eventually for production.
There are many applications for cold spray in the repair of large diesel engines:
- Cylinder blocks upper seal area
- Cylinder block or Cylinder head
- Bearing seats
Cold spray has the advantage of extremely high bond strength relative to Thermal Spray, as well as allowing for spot repair
