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 heavy equipment industry.
The US shipbuilding and repair industry directly employs over 100,000 skilled technicians. They, directly and indirectly, impact the employment of approximately 400,000 individuals who support America’s fleet of over 40,000 commercial vessels in addition to supporting fleets around the world. While apparently large, these numbers are only a small portion of the shipbuilding and repair industry worldwide.
Major shipbuilding and repair companies are developing advanced technology to manage dwindling skilled resources and are always focused on reducing the manpower and costs required to keep ships at sea.
It doesn’t matter if you are part of the global supply chain, defending the waterways, or providing vacations to the young and old; eventually, you will need ship repair and maintenance.
For propellers alone, the tips erode, and the surface gets rough from cavitation. That roughness creates further cavitation and leads to further erosion. An unexpected breakdown will complicate preventative maintenance and extend downtime for any system. Add to that the servicing of hydraulic components, motors, pumps, shafts and bearings, and more.
Dwindling skilled resources is another challenge for this impactful industry. Quick, cost-efficient repairs using more easily learned processes like HPCS will become more critical as the availability of technicians tightens.
VRC Metal Systems’ High-Pressure Cold Spray (HPCS) is a cost-efficient and time-saving method for correcting dimensional imperfections. It can also add lifespan-elongating coatings and get any vessel seaworthy faster and for a longer run with these additional benefits:
