Abstract

ABSTRACT:Triton proposes to develop a material system and process to fabricate reusable masks for surface modification of turbine parts. An FDM machine capable of producing complex shaped reusable masks is proposed to be delivered at the end of the program.BENEFIT:Masking materials are critical in virtually all industrial processes. The technology developed will enable low cost and short lead-time fabrication of masks across major industrial segments including the automotive and aerospace market segments.
