Aerospace Industry Overview

At VRC Metal Systems, our vision is “To be a global leader in cold spray and advanced manufacturing process technologies.”

Cold spray technology saves money for those in the aerospace industry.

Aircraft, equipment, and vehicles are grounded due to extensive corrosion and requiring costly repairs. The downtime alone is a budget line item that makes a reasonable return on investment unimaginable. With cold spray technology, you can repair your equipment with this minimally invasive procedure.

Challenges In The Aerospace Industry

Keeping aircraft running properly, passing inspections, and maintaining an overall safety of flight mentality can be very costly. When repairing parts results in higher costs than buying new, it’s time to rethink your options.

The actual cost to repair a broken part is only part of the expense. The downtime alone can push the expense outside of your acceptable budget range.

Safety of flight is a critical aspect to consider in the aerospace industry, and there are limited repair technologies with a proven track record of effectiveness.

How VRC Can Help The Aerospace Industry

Cold spray technology is a cost-effective technology to help overcome some of the challenges encountered by aerospace companies. With no heating of the parts required and no chemicals used, the net result is a “green” process with minimal emissions and no toxic fumes.

With cold spray technology, there is no distortion of the metal as there is in welding. And a nice side benefit of not welding is no oxidation and no heat-affected zone in the materials. In some situations, wearing a face mask may not be required.

Many times, removing the part in need of repair, and replacing it after the repair, can be as time-consuming as the repair job itself. VRC Metal System’s cold-spray process can allow a part to remain in place, saving costly hours of downtime with all the downtime hours spent on the actual repair instead of non-value-added activities.

With VRC Metal Systems, repair technicians can often repair a part without removing and replacing it. The repair has minimal emissions or toxic fumes that impact the environment or the health of the workers. The fixed portion can, in some cases, even be better than new by using a superior material to repair a sensitive substrate and at a fraction of the cost.
