PolyCSAM: A Hub for Industry and Research

PolyCSAM is a world-class industrial development and demonstration platform for hybrid cold spray additive manufacturing. Cold spray additive manufacturing, or CSAM, is a material deposition process used to create a wide variety of structures ranging from functional coatings to 3D structures. It features several technological advantages, including deposition rates that are 10 to 1,000 times higher than those of competing technologies, along with very little heat transfer to the substrate. It therefore provides a significant competitive advantage for many industrial applications, including aerospace, ground transportation and energy.
