CORSAIR

The CORSAIR project is a wide investigation concerning the capabilities of Cold Spray Technology for maintenance and repair of aeronautic frames and components. The project develops a New Industrial Portable Cold Spray Unit to extend the capabilities of in-situ maintenance and repair applications. The project will have a strong socio-economic impact by reducing scheduled maintenance requirements and by presenting a notable green character through re-usability, reduction of energy consumption, waste, toxic fumes and more.

CORSAIR Kick-Off Meeting

Cold Spray Radical Solutions for Aeronautic Improved Repairs (CORSAIR) held its kick-off meeting on June 24th at the Politecnico Di Milano facilities in Milan, Italy. During this one-day event, the partners had the opportunity to meet and decide upon the activities and interactions to be realized in the first months of the project.

Cold Spray deposition of Al alloy

The video shows the deposition of an Al alloy for repairing a section of a Mg-based fan case frame. The camera focuses into the TWI cold spray laboratory to show other equipment including the waste particle collection unit, the gas compound, the powder feeder and control unit, and finishes with some coated samples.

1rst Progress Meeting

The 1rst Progress Meeting of CORSAIR took place on Wednesday, February 5th 2014, at the premises of Universidad Rey Juan Carlos(URJC) in Madrid, Spain. This was a very important assembly, being the first time after the project Kick-Off for partners to meet and discuss their technical progress, findings and dilemmas so far. CORSAIR’s first step was to match the industrial needs of MRO divisions with the experimental plan for cold spray characteristics and capabilities. A collection of components listing properties of each part, its damage and required feature repairs has been assembled with inputs from the industrial partners. An initial list of materials of interest includes Al2024, Ti64, WE43 and powder materials are being prepared accordingly. Experiments will include adhesion and cohesion tests, static and fatigue characterization as well as plans regarding the electrochemical and corrosion resistance of materials. Next steps focus on the design of new nozzles and powder feeders for an innovative portable plant.
