Chromalloy further expands and invests in component manufacturing support and repair services in Europe

Chromalloy completed a major investment and further expansion of its component manufacturing support and repair capabilities in Tilburg, Netherlands. "Chromalloy's Tilburg facility has opened a new state-of-the-art coating line to provide gas turbine engine manufacturers and operators with our A-12 aluminum diffusion coating for steel and other turbine components," said Carlo Luzzatto, President.

"When applied to metal components during manufacturing and repair the A-12 protective coating inhibits corrosion and oxidation, effectively extending the life of the components and lowering operators' maintenance costs." Chromalloy's expansion and investment in Europe further serves customers' manufacturing, production and repair needs in the region, Luzzatto said.

The A-12 protective coating is applied at low temperatures by a pack cementation process to preserve the base alloy properties of gas turbine engine components that range in size from smaller compressor blades and vanes to cases and large buckets and vanes found in land-based industrial gas turbines and aero-derivatives.

The new coating line is semi-automated and REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and restriction of Chemicals) compliant in meeting all European environmental compliance standards for manufacturing operations. In addition to the newly opened A-12 coating line, Chromalloy added complementary new component machining capabilities at its Tilburg gas turbine engine center. The facility is now equipped to provide detail machining after coating applications on all sizes of turbine components.

New machining capabilities include laser drilling and Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) for components up to and including those in the largest land-based turbines. The 125,000 square foot facility in Tilburg provides OEM new production support and certified component repairs. The Tilburg center also provides other proprietary protective coatings; engineering services; joining technologies including brazing, welding and heat treatment; thermal processing; and advanced inspection. A new galvanic line was added in Tilburg in 2014 for cleaning operations performed before, during and after component manufacturing, repair, and nickel plating.
