Thanks to the Accuraspray, we have been able to achieve process Ppks over 1.5— even for very challenging coatings, such as thick, porous TBCs sprayed using new advanced gun concepts. The Accuraspray has also proven invaluable for process parameter development, for establishing tolerance windows, for troubleshooting and, finally, as a go/no go instrument.
