Cold Spray Repair | Aviation Repair & Overhaul

Faster, market-competitive, and safer aerotech repairs

For decades, both new part manufacturers and end-users have tried to find the best repair solutions for corroded and damaged parts. Replacement parts are expensive and usually have extended lead times. As a result, maintenance professionals often prefer repairing over replacing.

Many repair processes have been developed over the years for damaged parts, but these may induce undesirable thermal stresses resulting in premature failure. Over the past several decades, experts from around the world have been looking for alternatives. One innovative solution is a process called Cold Spray – an additive manufacturing process that uses metal powders accelerated to supersonic speeds to restore the original substrate without inducing thermal stresses. This process is being widely used in the automotive, industrial, and industrial marketplaces. It is ideal for aerospace materials like aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and other alloys.

Benefits Of Cold Spray Repair:

  • Significant Total Cost Savings. Repair vs. replacement saves both inventory and total sustainment costs.
  • Repair Time Reduction. Repair lead times substantially less than lead times for new components.
  • Improved Production Yield. Repair defects instead of scrapping to salvage newly manufactured parts.
