WIRE ARC SPRAYING

THERMAL COATING SOLUTIONS

THERMAL COATING SOLUTIONS

USING WIRE ARC SPRAYING

The right corrosion protection is the alpha and omega when it comes to durability and resistance of the material used. With wire arc spraying solutions from SMS group you benefit from a process characterized by high application rates and low energy consumption.

Process

Wire arc spraying represents a well established thermal spray technology. In the process two metallic wires (feedstock material) are fed into a focus point, were an electric arc melts the wire tips. Droplets are formed and are accelerated into the direction of the substrate by secondary atomization with a high-kinetic gas jet. The atomized particles are form a fine-structured homogenous coating on the substrate, with excellent mechanical properties.

COATING WIRE MATERIAL

Almost all metal materials that can be supplied in wire form can be processed. Thanks to the option of separately controlled wire feed rates, users are also able to process different materials on the cathode and anode sides, allowing alloys or pseudo-alloys to be produced in the process (e.g. combination of steel and nickel, or aluminum and copper).

Weld seam zinc coating of electric resistance welded profiles with PERFECT spray®

For this application report, a European manufacturer used the arc wire spraying process for the production of corrosion-resistant hollow sections from zinc coated metal stirps. The aim was to achieve a constant or even better quality of corrosion protection at low operating costs.
