Additive Manufacturing and Surface Finishing - The 53rd William Blum Lecture

This presentation is the 53rd William Blum Lecture, presented at SUR/FIN 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 6, 2016. In this lecture, Dr. Melissa Klingenberg discusses additive manufacturing; that is, any manufacturing process capable of making 3D objects from a digital model, or building-up 3D features onto an existing object, layer-by-layer.  Cold spray, thermal spray, electroforming, structural plating and gaseous carbonyl deposition are covered.

Intermittent Phosphate Line Usage

Q. I inherited a cleaning and phosphate line and over the last two weeks, we have lost our phosphate solution twice. I am told it is because we have lost iron in the solution. Is there an additive that can be used to help maintain the solution as the tank is not in constant use?

Fish Eye Additives

We have been experiencing craters or dimples in our current coating application process. We have spoken with our coating supplier, which said we may need to add an additive to eliminate this. What is this product, and how does it work?

Liquid Coating

Additives to Address Contaminant Issues

I have heard that a fish-eye-type additive can be added to the coating to help eliminate what looks like Swiss cheese in my coating after it has been sprayed. Can you give me any insights on this issue?

Powder on Galvaneal

We have customers that want a smooth powder coating on a galvaneal finish. We prep with a light alcohol wipe, prebake the parts to allow for off-gassing, then spray with a smooth powder. We are having problems with “craters” and specs, so the surfaces won’t pass a class “A” test. Is there a way to coat a galvaneal part with a smooth powder that does not have a special additive?
