The bilingual (German/English) trade journal THERMAL SPRAY BULLETIN covers the technology of Thermal Spraying in application-oriented specialist articles about new developments and state-of-the-art as well as peer-reviewed scientific specialist articles. In addition, reports on events, standardisation activities and companies keep our readership informed about latest developments.

Issue 2 (2021)

Issue Highlights:
Influencing and disturbing variables in relation to the feed stabilities of powder feed systems with different control concepts

The precise and stable feeding of powders is a basic prerequisite for thermal spraying and laser beam surface welding in order to be able to manufacture high-quality coatings and structures. The volumetric disc feeder fr...

Compaction, smoothing and hardening of thermally sprayed coatings by means of ultrasonic machining

The article deals with the ultrasoni-cally assisted post-treatment of thermally sprayed (TS) coatings. Ultrasonic (US) technology is optimised for various materials as examples (iron-based, zinc and copper sprayed coatin...

Validation of the velocity/temperature/particle measurements in processes based on plasma, wire arc and HVOF spraying - Status report

This article highlights those initial results with regard to the development of the validation of the veloc-ity/temperature/particle measurements in processes based on plasma, wire arc and HVOF spraying which have arisen...
