This paper describes the development of an online process control system for spraying thick thermal barrier coatings as part of a Brite Euram research project. In addition to the evaluation of the substrate temperature, a system for acoustic emission analysis for particle impact and for controlling crack propagation is developed. The procedure, the problems overcome, and the results obtained are described. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
