The ASM Thermal Spray Society (TSS) announced its inductees for the 2009 Hall of Fame at the International Thermal Spray Conference in Las Vegas in May. The Hall of Fame was established in 1993 to recognize and honor outstanding leaders who have made significant contributions to thermal spraying. Three persons were honored this year.

• Daryl E. Crawmer, director of technology for Thermal Spray Technologies in Sun Prairie, WI. According to TSS, he was inducted “for advancing thermal spray technology through numerous inventions in equipment and process design, and for being an invaluable source of information and advice to the thermal spray community.” Crawmer has been working in thermal spray for 37 years and is a long-time member and former vice chair of the Journal of Thermal Spray Technology Committee.

• Akira Nakahira, chairman and CEO of TOCALO Co., Ltd. (Kobe, Japan), and president of the Japan Thermal Sprayers Association. TSS states that he was inducted “for the development and industrialization of innovative thermal spray coatings, fostering one of the world’s largest thermal spray job shop companies, and for the advancement of thermal spray as a fundamental technology.” Nakahira has led a career in thermal spraying for 51 years, including being the vice chair for two worldwide thermal spray events, ITSC ’95 in Kobe and ITSC 2004 in Osaka.

• Anatolii N. Papyrin, president of Cold Spray Technology LLC in Albuquerque, NM. TSS inducted him “for outstanding scientific and technological contributions to the research and development as well as the commercialization of the cold spray process.” Papyrin has been developing and improving cold spray since 1994 at the National Center for Manufacturing Science in Ann Arbor, MI; Pennsylvania State University; and Ktech Corporation in Albuquerque, NM.
