Thermal Spray Symposium in Montreal to Cover Reliability and Consistency

11.08.2008
Building on the success of their Sensors and Controls event in 2004, the ASM Thermal Spray Society (TSS) will host a two-day symposium on “Improving Reliability and Consistency in Thermal Spray.” The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Montreal on Dec. 2-3, 2008.

This symposium will explore emerging technologies, practices, and training and certification processes, and will describe their effect on improving the reliability and consistency of thermal spray coatings, which are vital for industry production.

The two-day program will feature presentations from renowned thermal spray practitioners, engineers and scientists. Sessions include Process/Coating Monitoring and Control, Materials and Surface Preparation, Coating Properties and Performance, Training and Standardization, and Modeling and Application.

Organizers include Dr. Christian Moreau, Dr. Basil Marple, and Dr. Jean-Gabriel Legoux of the National Research Council (NRC), Canada; Luc Pouliot, Tecnar Automation, Canada; Lysa Russo, SUNY at Stonybrook, US; and Warren Nelson, GE Energy, US. A facility tour of the National Research Council facilities will be offered on Dec. 3.

Special registration fees are available to members of ASM International, TSS, DVS and GTS. For details and to register, visit http://www.asminternational.org/tsrc08/. For information about sponsorship opportunities, contact Kelly Thomas at 440.338.1733, or kelly.thomas@asminternational.org.

TSS is an Affiliate Society of ASM International, The Materials Information Society. Founded in 1994, the ASM Thermal Spray Society has grown to a membership of approximately 1,500 individuals around the globe representing over 500 leading companies, research institutions and universities. We are committed in promoting thermal spray technology and serving our members to create value for them individually and for the organizations they represent.

Recognized globally for research and innovation, the National Research Council (NRC) is a leader in the development of an innovative, knowledge-based economy for Canada through science and technology. The NRC’s Industrial Materials Institute (NRC-IMI), one of the twenty NRC institutes, is a research and development centre focused on materials, their formulation and forming, as well as the control of their processes. NRC-IMI works primarily in the metallurgy, polymer, aerospace, automotive and biomedical sectors. It helps Canadian companies meet the risks of the new economy by providing them competitive advantages and the required leverage to grasp opportunities.

Im Focus: Carbon Nanotubes Turn Electrical Current into Light-emitting Quasi-particles

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers

Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: 3-D scanning with water

3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects

A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
