Aerospace Newsletter

Welcome to our latest aerospace newsletter, we wanted to let you know what we've been up to and what's coming up.

Webinar: Aerospace Coatings - The Advantages of Microchemical Analysis


During this webinar, our Microprobe Analyst, Gary Kagel, will demonstrate how materials and process questions are rapidly answered through expert microchemical analysis. Electron probe microchemical analysis (EPMA) will be highlighted as a valuable tool to support the development, optimization and troubleshooting of advanced aerospace coatings. Case studies will be used to explore techniques for solving problems with diffusion coatings (Aluminide) and plasma spray coatings (TBCs / EBCs). The webinar will be taking place on 04 August 2020 at 15:00 (UK time) / 10:00 (EDT).

Technical Training Discussions


We understand most individuals and teams are now working in a different capacity, often remotely. In an effort to unite these teams, we're offering technical training sessions to help facilitate the joining of resources and capabilities. The technical training sessions are customized to meet specific team and/or company requirements. A few examples can be found below:

  • Metal Additive Manufacturing - A Metallurgical Perspective
  • Characterization & Troubleshooting of Aerospace Coatings using Microchemical Analysis
  • Flash Sintering - Applications within Aerospace (TBCs/EBCs, CMCs & Technical Ceramics)
  • Failure Analysis - What Engineers Need to Know

Update: New Facilities in Greenville, SC and Schenectady, NY


Our Greenville site in South Carolina, and our Schenectady site in New York, have both recently moved to brand new facilities and the renovations are now complete. As a result of COVID-19, we've postponed the grand opening event. Once things return to the 'new normal', we'll update you with the event details - watch this space!


Services for the Space Industry


We support the space industry through a wide range of services, across an array of materials; metals, polymers, ceramics, brazes and coatings. From failure analysis and Gleeble testing (thermal-mechanical simulation), to static and fatigue testing at cryogenic temperatures, and cleanliness and contamination monitoring. Our cross-industry experience in the aerospace sector facilitates the ability to provide diverse solutions to your challenges.
