There are over 2 million farms, covering nearly 900 million acres of farmland, employing almost 1 million people—those are the statistics in the US alone. Extend those numbers around the world, and you have an industry expected to feed 9.7 billion people by 2050.
In order to plant, produce, harvest, and transport all of those crops, the agricultural industry relies on an enormous variety of agricultural equipment. Equipment types such as tractors, combines, farm implements, irrigation equipment, tanks; process, storage, and filtration equipment; and conveyors, among so many others.
The constant need for repair and maintenance on this equipment is a major challenge in the Agricultural Industry. In the recent past, almost 12% year-over-year increases in farm machinery prices present a real financial barrier to simply replacing parts and equipment when they become worn or non functioning. Suppose rising equipment prices have not blocked your purchasing wants.
In that case, there is still no guarantee that parts and equipment are available to buy, as supply chain disruptions have affected shipping and quantities available of raw materials and components. These supply chain disruptions are causing manufacturers to fall behind in production.
VRC High-Pressure Cold Spray (HPCS) is a supersonic particle deposition process creating coatings or dimensional elements with enhanced corrosion and wear resistance. By repairing or improving what already exists, operations can go on uninterrupted by eliminating the need for new components and the dependence on a sluggish supply chain.
