Ace Precision utilizes five state-of-the-art robotic controlled plasma thermal spray systems, and can apply thermal spray coatings to complicated parts utilizing 3D modeling programming, computerized controllers, 6-axis robots, and auxiliary axis coordinated motion turntables.
We have over 20 years of experience spraying thermal barrier, wear abradable, abrasive seal, high/low temperature hard coatings and dimensional metal spray buildup of materials in a working envelope of 97"x11". Methods utilized for applying these coatings are plasma, combustion powder, and combustion wire. Our in-house metallographic laboratory continuously monitors coating quality, providing "real-time" analysis of current production in support of development and engineering projects.
NADCAP and OEM customers accredit Ace Precision engineering coating processes.
Thermal Barrier Coatings
Thermal barrier coatings are a two-layer coating consisting of a metallic bond coat followed by a ceramic topcoat. Together, the coating resists oxidation and has excellent thermal insulation properties, extending the life of engine components. Range of coating thickness is .003-.008 on the bond coat, and .010-.018 on the ceramic top coating.
Abradable Seal Coatings
Abradable seal coating is a two-layer coating consisting of a metallic bond coat followed by an aluminum polyester topcoat, and is used for clearance control applications where the rotating component may come in contact with the coating. Range of coating thickness is .003-.006 on the bond coat, and .050-.100 on the aluminum polyester top coating.
Metal Spray Buildup
Nickel aluminide coating is a single coating known for excellent bond strengths, high resistance to oxidation, and corrosion resistance in high temperature applications. Range of coating thickness is up to .200.
High/low Temperature Hard Coat
Carbide coatings are hard dense coatings used to resist cavitations and abrasive wear with excellent oxidation and corrosion resistance. Range of coating thickness is up to .015.
