New procedure offers cost savings in the production of stainless steel products why all stainless steel a stainless steel components must be? Ranging from a few millimetres to normal steel not a surface layer to achieve the same effect? The same question arises why copper lines must be the line from copper? An iron core coated with sufficient copper brings the same power, with substantial material savings. Aluminium parts that are coated for better processing with stainless steel are also helpful. So far, the answer to these questions was easy because there was no coating process that is cost effective and meet the needs. But that’s changing now. The new wide band coating process was at the Fachhochschule Kempten by Prof. Schindele designed and developed in many years of work to a level of maturity which now allows companies, this procedure to in-license.
The new procedure in the richness of material compositions somewhat reminiscent of the friction welding. The Beschichtunszeiten the new procedure are very short and the coating thickness is almost arbitrarily adjustable. The generated Oberlflache is this pore – and free of voids and also smooth surfaces. The adhesion of the coating to the substrate is high that even as buckets can be coated beneficial. Details of the procedure to introduce the procedure requires no high investment.
The procedure is fast and inexpensive. The coating material and the surface of the workpiece are heated as before and possibly during the coating process, that the coating material in a rubbing process can be applied on the surface of the workpiece. Thus, one is able to supply the heat any material, which is necessary for the frictional connection process. This can be done by friction linings or friction discs, as well as by other heat sources. A targeted control of heating also allows to create different material compositions with different thermal conductivities. Applications anywhere, where so far massive stainless steel parts are used, marine, chemical, petroleum industry, food processing, paper industry. Light-weight for transport industry, automotive industry, to reduce weight, E.g. for loading areas, agricultural machinery, bearings electrical industry with backing material made of steel, control surface of copper alloy bearings and sliding surfaces with steel as a backing material and bronze, brass alloys as sliding surfaces for automotive industry, General Engineering protection of steel surfaces from corrosion completely or partially with these materials. All steel products, the abrasive stress exposed mixer parts etc.
