  • Development of engineering surface coatings obtained by advanced, cost effective and environmentally friendly technologies. Publishable synthesis report


The main achievements of the project are:
(i) a new industrial technology and methodology for the spraying of synchroniser rings using unconventional �semi-axial� torch.

(ii) The demonstration that the process (SHS) permits the production of sprayable carbide powders.

iii) The development of new and superhard multilayer PACVD coatings

iv) Development of engineered equipment and production of a set of new high-performance-PVD-multilayer coatings

v) Design, production and in-service testing of high performance steels in the framework of hot forming stamping

vi) Modeling method, based on micro-mechanics and finite element analysis, to predict the in-service behavior of truck chassis stamping dies coated by PVD thin films
