Diamond and graphene to demostrate “superlubricity”

A way to use tiny diamonds and graphene to give friction the slip, creating a new material combination that demonstrates the rare phenomenon of “superlubricity”, Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne…

Coating engine components to save fuel

Scientist from the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS in Dresden have developed a new laser method to apply the coating on the production line: coating engine components with hard carbon reduces friction…

Affordable is better

A recent German study by haas reveals  all advantages of cellular machining over general-purpose CNC machine. The TU Darmstadt report, entitled ‘Cellular Manufacturing to enable Lean Machining’, was prepared by Stefan Seifermann, Jörg…

Fraunhofer Institute at EuroBLECH to show how to join ultra-high-strength chromium steels reliably with laser technology

Ultra-high-strength chromium steels, due to their high carbon content, could not be reliably bonded together by laser until now. At this year’s EuroBLECH, the International Sheet Metal Working Technology Exhibition, the Fraunhofer Institute…
