Cold Spray is a rapidly emerging technology with numerous applications that have not yet been realized. With the growth of this technology there will be a demand for laboratory systems to perform applications research and development as well as high volume production machines for specific industrial applications. The recent focus of Cold Spray equipment development has been to perfect nozzles and gun assemblies, gas heaters, gas flow, powder feed, and process control. This paper describes the automated equipment that is available in the market and presents some performance data. This equipment will serve as the prototype for the industrial equipment that will soon be designed and installed in industry for commercial production applications.
