Chemisch Nickel Dispersion

Electroless nickel dispersion coating for wear protection

Situation:

Tool wear occurs during cutting and forming

  • Temperature gradients and deviations
  • Mechanical stresses
  • Abrasion and surface fatigue

Solution:

  • Development of wear protection systems based on chemical nickel dispersion coatings

Operational benefit:

  • Reduction of wear
  • Increase in service life
  • Reduction of the downtimes for tool change
  • Reduction of the maintenance time and costs of the tools

The projects funded by the European Union and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia investigate the following topics:

– DisperTherm: wear protective coatings for rolls in long product hot rolling process

– non-stick-FiReNi: the electroless nickel dispersion layers are currently being optimised for use on highly loaded cutting tools
