Tech Needs of the Week

A company is seeking a powder slurry coating technology, where substrates are coated with powder slurry in an organic binder and then heat treated to diffuse the coating onto the substrates. Any proposed powder slurry coating technology should involve a powder composition based on Co-based or Ni-based alloys. It should be a water-based, environmentally friendly binder suitable for use on Fe-based alloy substrates. The technology should result in dense, crack-free, and metallurgically bonded coatings.

Techs of the Week

A method to detect image position errors includes forming a first pattern with a symbol embedded therein and a second pattern which, when positioned on the first pattern, exposes the symbol if the misalignment between the first and second patterns exceeds a position error tolerance. The symbol is perceivable with the unaided eye, even if the misalignment is imperceivable. The misalignment is quantifiable in two dimensions to enable correction of the error. This technique allows one to magnify the error when two patterns need to be superimposed in registration. Click here for more info.
