  • Presentation Title:

    The application of Cold Spray as an additive manufacturing process

    Presentation Synopsis:

    Cold Spray shows great potential for use as an additive manufacturing process. With Cold Spray it is possible to manufacture metal components at build rates exceeding 250 g/min, with densities of greater than 95%, with no heat affected zone or changes in the microstructure of the feedstock. It is also possible to create composite materials by mixing powders, and to join materials which are not metallurgically compatible. This presentation will detail the potential application areas for cold spray, highlighting some areas where the innovative use of Cold Spray allows for the creation of components and assemblies which would not be possible using other thermal spray or manufacturing processes.
