Thermal Spray Coating Machine

surface one


The thermal spray coating machine called surface one was developed to enhance the properties of surfaces, such as resistance to heat and corrosion. Compared to conventional systems, the machine combines all necessary components in one standardised compact design. This significantly speeds up configuration and installation and ensures reliable and repeatable coatings. The app-based user interface can be expanded with further functions at any stage.
