Recently filed patent applications of Rolls-Royce Corporation in USPTO?

Publication number: US20220186381A1
Application number: 17/551,480

A method may include cold spraying a masking material on selected locations of a component to form a masking layer, wherein the masking material comprises a metal or alloy; additively manufacturing an additively manufactured portion of the component at locations at which the masking layer is not present; and removing the masking layer from the component. The masking layer may be configured to protect portions of the component by covering or otherwise providing a physical barrier that reduces or prevents material from adhering to unwanted portions of the component during a subsequent manufacturing and/or repair technique. Additionally, the masking layer may be reflective to infrared radiation and/or intimately contact the component and function as a heat sink or thermally conductive layer to transfer heat from the component.
