  • Patent number: 8869739
    Abstract: Prior to instrumenting a turbine wheel for component and developmental testing, a protective coating is applied to the turbine wheel so that sensors can be welded to the coating rather than to the base material of the turbine wheel. But it is important to prevent the dovetail slots, which are critical to the usable life of the turbine wheel, from being coated. Plugs are provided that can be inserted into the dovetail slots prior to applying the coating. Each plug is shaped to match the shape profile of the dovetail slot. The plug prevents critical areas from being coated, removes the need for post processing, and allows a single coating to be applied.

  • Publication number: 20140315336
    Abstract: An organic light-emitting layer forming apparatus includes a stage supporting an intermediate product of an organic light emitting device, which includes a substrate, and a pixel defining layer including first openings. The apparatus includes a first mask disposed over the stage and including second openings, and a second mask disposed over the first mask and including third openings. The second mask is movable relative to the first mask between first and second positions. The third openings do not overlap the second openings in the first position while overlapping the second openings in the second position. T he apparatus includes an inkjet head unit disposed over the second mask and supplying an organic material to the third openings of the second mask in the first position. The second mask moves to the second position to transfer the organic material through the second openings.

  • Publication number: 20140287143
    Abstract: A mask is used in aluminizing of superalloy turbine component, such as a turbine blade, where a region exposed to relatively high operating temperature is aluminized to form a diffusion aluminide coating and another region exposed to relatively lower operating temperatures is masked to prevent aluminizing of the masked region while concurrently being enriched in Cr and/or retaining a pre-existing Cr-content from the superalloy chemistry itself or from a previous chromizing operation.

  • Patent number: 8839739
    Abstract: A masking apparatus is provided for masking a workpiece, for example a turbine blade, to protect portions thereof from the deposition of coating material thereon during selective application of a coating material to other portions of the workpiece. The masking apparatus includes an enclosure formed of a first mask half body defining a first cavity half and a second mask half body defining a second cavity half. The first mask half body and the second mask half body mate in assembly to form a workpiece cavity it which the workpiece may be enclosed.

  • Patent number: 8833295
    Abstract: An adhesive masking article for shielding a protected work surface from a coating applied to a surface adjacent the protected work surface includes a backing layer having first and second opposed major surfaces, and at least one edge, an adhesive on at least a portion of at least one of the first and second backing layer opposed major surfaces, and a barrier inducing treatment on at least an edge surface of the masking article to contact the coating when the coating contacts the edge of the backing layer, thereby causing a barrier to form along the edge of the masking article that impedes the migration of the coating past the edge of the masking article beneath the masking article.

  • Patent number: 8834054
    Abstract: A paint trimmer with a three-part edging guide includes a paint applicator, a paint distributing manifold and a handle. The three-part edging guide includes a paint mask, a spacer, and a beveled trimmer guide. The three-part edging guide components work together to allow the paint trimmer to create a straight edge of paint along a surface without any extra traditional masking needed to prevent paint from being applied to any unwanted areas.

  • Publication number: 20140251211
    Abstract: The present invention is a system for applying continual curvilinear, circular, or geometric painted patterns to a wall or target surface with a correctly aligned number of adjacent adhesive sheets or tiles of contact paper to create an uninterrupted pattern. If these individual adhesive sheets are placed in a row or column, similar to ceramic tiles application, the final reveal is a continual pattern or design. The adhesive sheets or tiles are terms meant to encompass individual larger sheets of adhesive contact paper. These serve as masking tape cut in a shape or pattern and applied to transfer paper with guidelines to create proper alignment. The cut out sheets of contact paper are decorative in nature and are configured to prevent the passage of paint through the body to a target surface or wall.
