/ Innovating in surface treatments
Lincotek Surface Solutions (formerly Turbocoating) was originally a division of Flametal S.p.A., a coating facility specializing in surface treatments for several industrial applications, including gas turbines. Flametal was founded in 1973 and sold to Praxair in July 1996. In September 1999 it became a separate independent company, Turbocoating S.p.A., owned by Mr. Nelso Antolotti.
Lincotek Surface Solutions draws on four decades in the thermal spray industry by continuously advancing research, development, innovation and manufacturing techniques. Today, we operate two facilities, one in north America (North Carolina) and one in Europe (Italy), with the capability to provide coating and post-coating treatments for OEM land- based gas turbine and aircraft engines.
We have developed over the years from a typical coating shop to a centre of excellence for manufacturing gas turbine parts in an engine-ready configuration. In fact, Lincotek Surface Solutions is able to provide all the treatments on turbine parts after casting and machining.
In 1999, Turbocoating (today Lincotek Surface Solutions) invested heavily to offer vacuum plasma spray, air plasma spray and heat treatment services to OEMs. In the following years, further coating technologies were introduced, such as HVOF and diffusion coatings to complete the range.
