Cold Spray Club

The COLD SPRAY CLUB, founded in 2006 by Michel Jeandin and continued today by Francesco Delloro, is run by the Ecole des Mines de Paris.

The COLD SPRAY CLUB regards laboratories, transfer centres and industrial companies (manufacturers, applicators and end-users) interested in this dynamic process commonly called “cold spray”. Although increasingly recognized that such solid-state deposition technique is now one the leaders in terms of innovation among the many thermal spray processes. The cold spray process was undoubtfuly growing in recent years because it offers the possibility of making metal deposits (possibly composite) dense and thick preserving the purity of the sprayed powders. It now becomes a very interesting process for Additive Manufacturing industry. These desired characteristics, combined with the commercialization of robust industrial equipment to be fully integrated in a production line make a keen interest in many industrial sectors (aerospace, biomedical, energy, repair). However, the cold spray characteristic mechanisms in relation to the characteristics of the powders are still the heart of the concerns of researchers involved in the Cold Spray Science.
The mission of the COLD SPRAY CLUB is to expose and address issues related to understanding the process and analysis of the materials that are made by this new manufacturing route. To do this, it is proposed in the COLD SPRAY CLUB to arrange active exchanges through oral presentations and panel group discussions with members at regular meetings (about 2 per year) and to promote the worldwide networking of the academic and industrial members. Literature review and technological surveillance has been conducted since 2006 and registered on the area reserved for Club members within the Cold Spray Club website. This privileged space also provides access to presentations.
