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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
