Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR COATING A SUBSTRATE
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR REVETIR UN SUBSTRAT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method and apparatus for coating the surface of a substrate suspend a coating material above the surface of the substrate and irradiate both the coating material and the underlying surface of the substrate. By irradiating both the coating material and the underlying surface of the substrate, a first portion of the coating material is melted to form an at least partially molten droplet of coating material. In addition, at least a second portion of the coating material is ablated to thereby create an ablation plume which propels the at least partially molten droplet of coating material toward the substrate. In addition, the portion of the substrate toward which the at least partially molten droplet of coating material is propelled is simultaneously heated, such that the at least partially molten droplet coating material adheres to the heated substrate, thereby coating the surface of the substrate.
(FR)Un procédé et un appareil pour revêtir la surface d'un substrat consistent à suspendre un matériau de revêtement au-dessus de la surface du substrat et à irradier le matériau de revêtement et la surface sous-jacente du substrat. Lors de l'irradiation simultanée du matériau de revêtement et de la surface sous-jacente du substrat, une première portion du matériau de revêtement subit une fusion pour former une gouttelette de matériau de revêtement au moins partiellement fondue. En outre, au moins une deuxième portion du matériau de revêtement subit une ablation pour ainsi créer un panache d'ablation qui propulse cette gouttelette vers le substrat. En outre, la portion du substrat, vers laquelle ladite gouttelette est propulsée, est simultanément chauffée, de telle manière que le matériau de revêtement sous forme de gouttelette au moins partiellement fondue adhère au substrat chauffé, recouvrant ainsi la surface du substrat.
