The following pages show a small selection of the many and varied metal spraying applications. You can filter the applications on the left hand side or search for keywords that may relate to your application, e.g. LPG or Steel. Further applications can be seen in the Blog and Press section as well as the Video section.

application Production repair of automotive body pressings & assemblies

INTRODUCTION      Automobile body pressings are susceptible to various types of minor damage during production, handling and whilst creating sub assemblies. Metal Spraying using the Metallisation Arc Process provides a fast, reliable and economic solution to repair these pressings. 1. Typical Areas where repair is required prior to painting: 1.1. Roof & Quarter Panel […]

application The reclamation of crankshafts by the powder flamespray process

Introduction The reclamation of crankshafts (and many other components) by powder flamespraying can produce considerable savings over the replacement cost. 50% savings are common and on large components, as much as 90% may be saved. The need for reclamation may be to correct manufacturing errors, to repair an obsolete part or a part that has […]

application The reclamation of crankshafts by Plasmaspray

Introduction The reclamation of crankshafts (and many other components) by plasma spraying can produce considerable savings over the replacement cost. 50% savings are common and on large components, as much as 90% may be saved. The need for reclamation may be to correct manufacturing errors, to repair an obsolete part or a part that has […]

application The Reclamation Of Crankshafts By Arcspraying

The reclamation of crankshafts (and many other components) by electric arcspraying can produce considerable savings over replacement costs. 50% savings are common, and on large components, as much as 90% may be saved. The need for reclamation may be to correct manufacturing errors, to repair an obsolete part or a part that has worn excessively […]

application The reclamation of clutch pressure plate faces

Introduction Clutch pressure plate casting faces have been reclaimed by the arcspray process for well over 10 years, on a fully commercial basis, by clutch re-manufacturing specialists. In use, the clutch pressure plate will wear and form heat cracking on its operative face taking it below acceptable tolerance. By using the Metallisation arcspray process the […]

application The reclamation of clutch diaphragms springs

Introduction During use, the clutch diaphragm spring will wear on its tip ends at the point where it comes into constant contact with the thrust bearing. The clutch diaphragm spring in itself is not particularly an expensive item, however, the labour involved in removing the old spring from its housing then replacing it with new […]

application Comparison of metal spraying with painting

Painting is a widely used method of protecting steelwork (and other materials) from corrosion. Most paints are organic (polymer) bases with added metal particles, corrosion inhibiting compounds or inert filler materials. They may be applied by dipping, brushing or spraying to suitably prepared (grit blasted) surfaces. Protective paint systems are multi-layer comprising a priming coat, […]

application Thermal spraying of piston rings

  INTRODUCTION  A piston is defined as a ‘cylindrical piece moving to and fro in a hollow cylinder as in engines or pumps’. To seal the gases during the compression and work strokes of an engine, piston rings are used to provide an effective seal as well as preventing excessive lubrication oil from reaching the […]

application Comparison of metal spraying with electro plating

The most common method is deposition from aqueous solutions, many of which are toxic. During electro plating, water decomposes and hydrogen is deposited at the surface being plated. This will cause embrittlement of high strength steels unless they are heat treated immediately after plating. This is only partially effective in reversing the damage. Electro deposition […]
