HVOF

HVOF

When Hill Air Force Base came to us asking for a new interface to use with their HVOF spray booth we gave them what they needed. What they needed was a program that could display the temperature of the production part and also tell the robot when it needed to wait before making another pass.

With the new control they were able to decrease the waste of plasma. Before the new program the sprayer used a timer before the next pass. Now it will make the next pass when the temperature range is within tolerance. Not only did this reduce waste but it also reduced the time spent on each unit.

Data is saved to the hard drive for each run. Set points are adjustable for the high, low, and shut down temperatures. A real time graph displays the temperature during the current process.
