The Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance (JMEP) has published a peer-reviewed paper by Technical Director, Dr Yuri Zhuk 'CVD Tungsten Carbide Coating on Aircraft Actuators and Gearbox Shafts Reduces Oil Leakage and Improves Durability'. Click on the headline above to read a copy.
Dr Wolfgang Hahn, Commissioning Manager, Hinkley Point C (HPC) Nuclear New Build at EDF Energy will be joining Hardide Coatings' Technical Director, Dr Yuri Zhuk and Business Development Manager, Robin Gillham to present the results of a joint project between Hardide Coatings and EDF Energy which has proven that the Hardide CVD coating can extend the life of steam turbine blades. The trio will be presenting at the IMechE Steam Turbine Users Group annual conference taking place on 13 – 14 March 2019 at Manchester United Football Ground, Old Trafford, Manchester, UK.
CEO Philip Kirkham will be presenting Hardide plc at the UK's only growth and technology focused investment show, the Growth & Innovation Forum, being held on Tuesday 29th January 2019 between 09:00 and 17:30 at the Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, Islington, London, N1 0QH. Come along to the presentation or to our stand at the exhibition and learn more about us.
Hardide Aerospace Coatings is exhibiting and attending the American Aerospace & Defense Summit on December 12-13, 2018 in Glendale, AZ. The summit connects aerospace and defense manufacturing leaders from across the globe. We're looking forward to raising awareness of the Hardide technology and taking advantage of the exceptional networking opportunities.
Well construction specialist DeltaTek Global selected the Hardide CVD (chemical vapour deposition) tungsten carbide-based coating for the key component of its new ArticuLock tool. ArticuLock provides operators with longer weather windows to deploy subsea hardware and improve operational reliability by removing bending fatigue in subsea running tools and landing strings.
Hardide Coatings has been awarded funding for two projects from The National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (“NATEP”). The funding will further the application of the company’s innovative coating technology to aircraft components. NATEP is a £14.4m aerospace initiative programme to mature 40 aerospace technologies in the UK aerospace supply chain. Hardide Coatings is the lead partner on both of the projects.
The July 2018 issue of Aerospace and Defense Technology, the largest-circulation US engineering magazine for the commercial and military aerospace market, features an article by Technical Director, Dr Yuri Zhuk detailing how Hardide CVD coatings are improving component life in abrasive and corrosive aerospace environments.
Hardide Coatings is now certified to coat aerospace, defence and space industry components in the USA. The company’s production facility in Martinsville, Virginia has received approval to the new, stringent AS 9100 Rev D quality management standard. This follows the award of AS 9100 Rev D certification to its UK production site in Bicester, Oxfordshire in December 2017. Both accreditations were awarded by the global certifying body Lloyds Register.
