METAL DEPOSITION

PLASMA & FLAME SPRAY OPERATIONS

Zinc coating

Metal deposition processes are versatile fabrication techniques used by many aerospace, military, and industrial operations. Deposition processes are used to modify metallic parts for a variety of reasons that include restoring desired dimensions, improving abrasion resistance, improving temperature resistance, increasing corrosion protection, providing electrical shielding, and increasing conduction. While many different types of deposition processes and equipment exist, most operations currently found in San Diego County can be broadly categorized into two groups; flame spray and plasma arc.
