New Navy Thermal Spray System has “Tons” of Features …



At the top of the list of features is the 2.5 ton lathe capacity capable of rotating shafts up to 34” in diameter and 25 feet long (pictured here with the 5,252 pound test weight in place). The system will soon be installed at the Navy submarine repair station in Virginia. When you are in the business of overhauling submarines, the customer noted, you never really know what your day-to-day workload will be. For this reason, the part manipulator can handle a wide range of part geometries. The system also quickly shifts between Plasma, HVOF, and wire-arc spraying process via the CITS Pro™ gas control hardware and software.
