University of Michigan - Dearborn takes delivery of 100HE Plasma Spray System



Progressive Technologies has delivered a 100HE high enthalpy plasma spray system to the University of Michigan in Dearborn, for use in their advanced thermal spray coating development applications.

According to Dr. Pravansu Mohanty, Associate Professor Department of Mechanical Engineering, they will utilize the 100HE plasma system in their thermal spray lab on work involving net-shape forming, laser beam densified ceramics and vacuum plasma coatings.

The 100HE provides the University of Michigan the opportunity to spray high performance ceramic materials due to the high enthalpy nature of the systems plasma plume. In addition, since the 100HE can feed powder via axial, radial and external feed modes the system provides Dr. Mohanty’s lab with increased flexibility in spraying novel material combinations.
