Thermal spraying technology was one of the listed advanced manufacturing technologies to be developed with great effort in “the eleventh five-year” programming and the perspective layout for the years to 2020 of China. It is also a very important technology to promote establishment of economical society. This paper analyzed some application cases of thermal spraying technology to several typical components such as the corrugated roller used for packaging industry, injection molding screw for plastic industry, insulated bearing for railway industry and ball valve with large diameter for petroleum & chemistry industry which were practiced by Surface Engineering Research Institute of CAAMS in recent years. This paper presented some new developments on applications of thermal spraying technology in China and some considerations on the developing trends of thermal spraying applications in China in future are put forward in comparison with the current situation of oversea thermal spray practices.
