<italic<In situ</italic< fringe projector development for thermal coating deposition

Paper Abstract

Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) and plasma spray coatings, in general, require fine control over the deposited thickness to achieve a reliable coating performance. Currently, the plasma spray industry quantifies thickness by sampling the part before and after TBC deposition. Approximate thickness is inferred from previous runs; however, process variability can cause errors in these approximations that result in wasted time and resources that can ultimately lead to nonreliant coatings. To this end, we present an
