Development of an innovative coating process for pressure die casting dies that will, for the first time, use thin nano-crystalline diamond layers on steel parts. Application industries include autmotive, aerospace and domestic appliances.
To enable the recycling of chromium nitride (crn) coated tooling by developing environmentally sound industrial crn stripping processes to promote the efficient use and reuse of materials.
Development of a salt bath based dense carbonitriding process for piston rods of rear shock absorbers, destined for the original equipment market, guaranteeing strength and dynamic durability.
The main goal of the project is to improve adhesive surface properties under conditions of contact with the living tissue and to increase the life-time of artificial implants in a human body by depositing protective coatings.
The main goal of the project is to improve and optimise surface properties of advanced metallic materials through the physical and chemical deposition of thin and hard layers and combinations thereof.
Development of very cheap rfid antennas. The principle is that a plastic film will be coated with a material that prevents the metal from sticking to the substrate in vacuum deposition. Coated in pre-designed shapes, we obtain kilometer-long rolls
The yield increase of a 6 inch wafer compared to a 2 inch wafer is about 67%. Innovative research on the development of a 6 inch gan-on-sapphire wafer technology must be started to anticipate the expected need for reactors and substrates.
To thoroughly study how innovative surface treatments (low-pressure plasma and corona treatment) improve the coating, laminating and other textile processes.
Final surface integrity is of the highest importance in the industrial and technical design. The project will focus on a system for assesing surface quality (nano-, micro-, macro level) in product, tool and mould production.
The main objective of the project is development of the production technology of special iso transport containers, protected against corrosion by hot dip galvanising. These containers should stand out from other containers available on the market by their excellent corrosion resistance.
