New EU-Project: NewSkin
From April, 1st 2020 until March, 31st, 2024, we will buil up and establish test and analysis as well as research capacities for the beneficial surface modification of components, in particular for friction and wear reduction in technical contacts. We will surface treat (e.g. by Laser Surface Texturing of Coating) shafts, bearings an gears as inital us cases. In a later stage of the project, it is planned to modify surface properties of moulds as well as gas turbine blades to impove their friction and wear behaviour.
