Corrosion Repair - Tail Rotor Housing
- Corrosion and manufacturing defects in the casting process caused surface pitting, a typical problem with castings. The castings had to be scrapped.
- Moog repaired the magnesium surface using a Cold Spray aluminum alloy.
- Repairing this part with Cold Spray ensured that the coating is more corrosion and wear resistant. The potential cost savings is up to 70% of a replacement part.
