TriboCoat – Optimization of highly stressed sliding contacts by the use of innovative coating and surface concepts

Situation:

  • Frequent malfunction in the case of sliding contacts in the boundary friction regime for discontinuous movements and high loads.
  • High consequential costs e.g. in continuous casting plants due to bearing damage, production shut downs, loss of quality.
  • Anti-Friction-Coatings offer a wide range of advantages under these tribological conditions.

Solution:

  • Stress analysis
  • Development of adapted Anti-Friction-Coating systems and the necessary application technology
  • Constructive adaptation of the component or adaptation of the component production
  • Evaluation of the coating systems / functional surfaces by means of model tests
  • Modification of a test stand for the test of original bearings / conducting tests
  • Field test in a continuous casting plant

Operational benefit:

  • Determination of the existing stresses
  • Selection of possible Anti-Friction-Coating systems according to the present surface pressure, temperature and environmental conditions
  • Increasing process reliability
