/ Much more than coating

As a full-service provider of coatings and post-coating services, we also offer LASER drilling, welding, vacuum brazing and NDT capabilities for advanced gas turbines. It allows us to deliver customers engine-ready parts.

Vacuum HT and brazing

We can process a wide variety of superalloys of turbine engine components, providing coatings with interdiffusion zones and appropriate coating structure. You’re not only assured of state-of-the-art equipment, but also the in-depth experience of our team.

As part of the coating manufacturing scope, we can procure and supply auxiliaries to be vacuum brazed to your products. These include plates, baffles, inserts, deflectors, covers and restrictors to be assembled to your turbine part.

Laser drilling and ablation

When traditional TIG welding is not competitive, or alternative solutions are required to meet weld conditions (such as low heat input, metallurgical aspects, deep penetration in a single pass, repeatability and thick plate welding), LASER welding is the solution.

You can increase overall productivity which may lead you to simplify designs and create stronger components.

Laser welding and ablation

Laser technology is a core competence, which we offer for drilling through non-conductive TBC coated products with a complex cooling geometry. They may have, for example, a serpentine cooling scheme matched with a pattern of film cooling holes.

Through 3D modelling, probing and optical enhancements of process control, we can offer cylindrical or shaped (fan) hole drilling patterns through a fully coated part. Airflow measurement is an integrated process to check designated flow rates of your products.

Surface finish and testing
