Validated application of LFC-EAL in grinding machines

The main result of this activity is the definition of the specifications of coatings and lubricants to be used in critical components to be introduced in grinding machines.

As a consequence of this it is expected that the availability of the machines will increase up to a 98%. This will represent a competitive advantage to achieve new orders and customers (valuated as 350 k euros/year).

A second effect of this result will be the reduction of the period time to probe the requirements of the machines (from 15 to 12 months).

On the other hand Doimak expect to reduce the environmental impact of the machines by means of the use of ecological lubricants.
