Webinar on plasma electrolytic oxidation at Swedish university
Our colleague Frank Simchen will hold a webinar on plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) on 22.06.2022 at 10:00 as part of a continuing education series at the University of Jönköping. The lecture and discussion are aimed at potential users and researchers. During the event, the basics of the process will be explained and the current state of the art and current research trends will be described. The event will be moderated by Dr Maximilian Sieber.

IGF research project "OptiGrain“ successfully completed
The objective of the completed research project IGF - 20.588 BR was the "Optimisation of the carbide grain size in WC-Co(Cr) coatings to increase wear resistance under simultaneous corrosive stress". The result of the project with the short title "OptiGrain" is the adaptation of the established WC-10Co4Cr coatings to changed requirement profiles compared to the time of their development.

New IGF project "GaGoKom" launched
Since the end of last year, the Chair of Materials and Surface Engineering has been working together with Prof. Frank Köster's Surface/Galvanotechnology group at Mittweida University of Applied Sciences to replace cyanide in gold electroplating with alternative complexing agents. The project is supported by 16 industry-related specialist companies on the project committee.
