application Thermal Barrier Coating Onto Exhausts Systems

INTRODUCTION: Thermal Barrier Coating (TBCs) are ceramic materials which are widely used on modern aero engines and land based turbines. They can also be applied to vehicle exhausts, turbocharger casings, heat shields and other vehicle components to reduce heat transfer and improve vehicle performance. Heat soak from hot exhaust systems transfers into other vehicle components […]

application Laser Cladding for Continuous Caster Rolls

Laser Cladding for Continuous Caster Rolls   Continuous caster rolls are used in the steel industry to cast continuous solid forms from liquid steel. The rolls are exposed to thermal fatigue, high temperatures, bending stresses, corrosion oxidation and abrasion. The standard method of protecting caster rolls is by submerged arc welding with a 400 series […]
