Development of new materials for hardfacing against abrasion and hydro-abrasion with longer life and better environmental conditions than those of currently used materials.
Research and development into process arrangements to reduce the environmental impact of chemicals production.
Development of a forging and rolling technology for nickel-based alloys. Small and large crankshaft forging technologies will be optimized using numerical simulation support.
Ledeburitic steels prepared using the rapid solidification effect, as well as those with the addition of ceramic particles, will be developed. The coating of final steel and hard materials will be investigated.
Investigation into pulsatory forming technology including generator of pulses development and description of the influence of pulses on material will be provided. This technology will be applied to industrial production.
Development of new antibacterial additives, fibres and textile materials designed for protection of humans against pathogenic microorganisms.
Creation of new systems as original tools to enhance existing and develop new techniques/products in metallurgy with higher service properties at comparatively low production costs and verification of them.
Development and production of biopreparations and a new generation of organo-mineral fertilisers promoting decomposition of post-harvest residues/straw, improving soil properties/increasing supperssivity of soil environment.
The aim of the project is to prolong the life-time of p/m ledeburitic steel tools by upgrading the tool material and applying various surfacing techniques.
Develop a system to make welders certicates more effective and improve distribution and access to the certificates through the internet. Also including information about the european welding federation education scheme.
