Cold Spray Club

Since 2006, the COLD SPRAY CLUB is run by the Ecole des Mines de Paris and its Competence Centre for Spray Processing (Director: Michel Jeandin). The Cold Spray Club has worked regularly with two meetings per year for 10 years. Two international symposia EUCOSS with a mini-exhibition in 2011 and 2014 were scheduled in Paris.

In 2016, the Cold Spray Club is changing the format to open more effectively to the growing demand around this additive process and also facilitate its discovery by the greatest number.

The COLD SPRAY CLUB regards laboratories, transfer centers and industrial companies (manufacturers, applicators and end-users) interested in this dynamic process commonly called "cold spray". Although increasingly recognized that such solid-state deposition technique is now one the leaders in terms of innovation among the many thermal spray processes. The cold spray process was undoubtfully growing in recent years because it offers the possibility of making metal deposits (possibly composite) dense and thick preserving the purity of the sprayed powders. It now becomes a very interesting process for Additive Manufacturing industry. These desired characteristics, combined with the commercialization of robust industrial equipment to be fully integrated in a production line make a keen interest in many industrial sectors (aerospace, biomedical, energy, repair, ...). However, the cold spray characteristic mechanisms in relation to the characteristics of the powders are still the heart of the concerns of researchers involved in the Cold Spray Science.

The mission of the COLD SPRAY CLUB is to expose and address issues related to understanding the process and analysis of the materials that are made by this new manufacturing route. To do this, it is proposed in the COLD SPRAY CLUB to arrange active exchanges through oral presentations and panel group discussions with members at regular meetings (about 2 per year) and to promote the worldwide networking of the academic and industrial members. Literature review and technological surveillance has been conducted since 2006 and registered on the area reserved for Club members within the  Cold Spray Club website. This privileged space also provides access to presentations.

To apply for registration as a member of Cold Spray Club, simply fill out an online application or email to the contact address. This open membership gives the right to attend meetings which may be organized also by each members and access to the web space for members who then receive a registered access code. Membership is maintained as it is actively participating in the life of Cold Spray Club, including the regular meetings that constitute the heart of the activity of Cold Spray Club.

For the organization of the COLD SPRAY CLUB and logistics necessary to support meetings, the organizers appeal to industrial sponsorship.
