Benchmark: Waterjet- and Laser-Stripping Process of Ceramic and Metallic Coatings on Turbine Blades
Are Waterjet- and Laser-Stripping processes alternatives to remove coatings from turbine blades?
Challenge and Motivation
- Lifetime of turbine blades can be extended by renewing ceramic thermal barrier and metallic bond coatings.
- Waterjet- and Laser-Stripping provide a green alternative for coating removal on complex geometries.
- Technological Benchmark of two competing process technologies for coating removals on complex geometries regarding
- Process quality
- Process efficiency.
