The Accuraspray CS is an in-line cold spray sensor that measures in-flight particle velocity and feed rate. This is an easy-to-use cold spray sensor to monitor daily quality control, process development and setup transfer.Talk to an expert
Control your process to control your coatings
The vision behind the Accuraspray CS is to make cold spray diagnostics accessible to all. That’s why we created an easy-to-use, dependable and affordable sensor for all cold spray shops. Don’t leave things to chance. Control your spray conditions to achieve repeatable coatings, every run.
Cold spray processes are very sensitive to particle velocity. Achieving critical velocity is key to maximizing deposition efficiency and ensuring good coating adhesion. Monitoring the real-time in-flight velocity can help production managers attain maximum spray time efficiency and coating consistency.
Since stability is crucial in spray processes, the Accuraspray CS features a new process stability measurement. This state-of-the-art stability analysis tool sets benchmarks so operators can compare acceptable parameter deviations with real-time standard deviations. This results in increased repeatability and greater confidence in your measurements.
The Accuraspray CS was built on the consistent, easy-to-use Accuraspray 4.0 platform, the benchmark for spray diagnostics in production environments. The Accuraspray CS may be a new product at Tecnar, but it capitalizes on decades of engineering in the Accuraspray family.
The velocity measurements are factory calibrated using a NIST traceable calibration bench to recreate the conditions experienced in the field and filtering algorithms display values you know you can trust.
The Accuraspray CS measures the light reflected by the particles in the spray plume so you can monitor the feed rate in real time. Predict clogging in the gun, nozzle wear or changing booth conditions by detecting swaying feed rate. The user can also set up correlations for the feed rate with preferred units (g/min or RPM) for a specific powder lot.
You’re in control with the Accuraspray CS. It features a modern, web-based user interface, making it easy to access from any computer, anywhere and the interface can be viewed on multiple viewing devices simultaneously. Communication infrastructure via HTTP or external PLC makes full 4.0 booth integration possible, including communication with robots and Go/No Go decisions.
The evolution of all measurements over time is visualized on intuitive strip chart displays.
Production reports are generated with a single click in the user interface or through digital I/O.
The Autoset feature automatically adjusts all important setup parameters according to spray conditions.
It’s important that our clients understand how easy it is to integrate the Accuraspray CS into their quality process. We’ve divided this into the following five steps:
