This paper describes a powerful new approach, based on optical emission spectroscopy, for monitoring thermal spraying processes and coating quality. Through online analysis of the emitted process spectra, users can track variations in the running process as well as in the coatings produced. As proven in numerous studies, all relevant process parameters can be separated and detected using OES techniques, and recent work indicates that the method is applicable to all thermal spray processes.
