New industry certification for aerospace coatings applicators professionals

  • 19-Oct-2011 02:52 EDT

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC), and Honda Aircraft have created the first-ever industry certification for aerospace coatings applicators professionals. SSPC and Embry-Riddle conducted the first professional training and certification of individuals involved in this aerospace coatings application. Four Honda Aircraft employees were the first to complete the certification program in late August 2011. The collaboration between Embry-Riddle, SSPC, and Honda Aircraft was driven by a common goal to lead the industry toward higher paint quality by creating a standard for quality in the preparation of an aircraft's surface and in the training of professionals to consistently achieve that standard. Embry-Riddle will offer fully online training to lead to the new Aerospace Coatings Applicators certification program beginning in January 2012.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
