Even distribution of a coating


A metalized surface is a common requirement for ceramic parts. Common coatings are Gold, Graphite and Platinum.  A common method of applying such coatings is to use a resonate liquid which when fired, leaves a thin layer of gold, (or other metal on the ceramic surface.  A typical challenge for applying such coatings is  to develop a process to atomize and evenly distribute the coating through a relatively small openings, (less than about 1.4" ID).  Control and consistency of the coating are always primary requirements.  The first phase of this project was the R&D for the spray head.  A number of methods were considered.  The final selection was incorporated into a machine that remained in production for over 15 years.
