Cadorath Aerospace (Booth No. 3212), marking its 57th year in business, has established a technical support team to work as a liaison between Bell operators and its engineering division and thereby “established hundreds of new Bell product offerings,” according to president and CEO Gerry Cadorath.
Doncasters is investing close to $350,000 to develop the plasma spray facility at Doncasters Airmotive and Doncasters Aerospace Components in Shrewsbury, UK. Plasma spray technology is used to apply various metallic and ceramic coatings onto components by feeding the metallic or ceramic powder into a plasma flame with intense heat that melts the powder and sprays it onto the component.
BizJet International of Tulsa, Okla., has announced the operation of its new plasma spray machine. “The new plasma spray system lets us restore engine components damaged by corrosion and worn by normal engine operation,” said Robert Peters, vice president of engine maintenance. The company is using the new process on Pratt & Whitney Canada, Rolls-Royce, Honeywell and General Electric engine parts.
