Utilisation of new steel qualities and technologies will be applied for thin-walled high strength tube production. Trip effect assisted steels combined with bake hardening treatment will be utilised to achieve extraordinary properties.
Development of a lubricant for the warm compaction of metal powders, together with the associated mixing technology, in order to produce powder metallurgical components with a very high density (98% of wrought density).
Design of new methods of the production of very pure steel based on 26nicrmov145. New forming and thermomechanical treatment technologies for this material will be also developed. The assumption is to produce devices for power plants from the new developed material.
The use of secondary material sources on the basis of al203, and development of technology for transformation into synthetic slag suitable for processing in the steel industry. Development of a slag system for metallurgy.
Selection of micro-alloying additions combined with optimal forming and heat treatment conditions will be used to enhance end-use properties of steel products: forgings, sheets, strips and tubes.
The microstructure and properties of adi parts depend on composition, as-cast microstructure and phase transformation kinetics. These parameters must be optimised to ensure the required properties. The project is aimed at the development of adi, treatment and simulation to optimize its manufacturing
The purpose of this project is to develop new thermo-chemical treatment device based fluidised bed principle. New treatment technologies will be developed for this devices leading to lower cost and higher efficiency of the treatment process.
Eva-plex is a new patented clean technology applying, on steel substrate, a double layer (znfe + organic coating) for protection against the corrosion in order to guarantee the sustainability on very long term. Eva-plex 2 project will develop the process and the products at industrial pilot scale.
Metal cutting of advanced materials in aerospace, aviation or power generation requires more and more high performance cutting tools. For twist drills, requirements such as, wear, hardness, red hardness, toughness or stability are in future from vital importance.
New technology will be developed for stainless steel concrete anchors production by thermomechanical processing of low ni and ni-free steel grades to reach the best balance between the anchor cost and its performance (1200-1500 mpa tensile strength, 10-12% elongation, high corrosion resistance)
