G2. Components Coatings for Automotive, Aerospace, Medical and Manufacturing Applications

Session Chairs

Osman Levent Eryilmaz, Argonne National Laboratory, USA, Eryilmaz@anl.gov

Since thin films have very interesting properties that are quite different from those of bulk materials they become an essential part of industrial processes and end products to enable/improve certain properties of components. This session will cover application oriented research and development on surface modified products and technologies. Topics include coated products/components in areas of tribology, corrosion, high temperature, optical, magnetic, and electrical applications, catalysis, bio-technology, medical applications and other fields. The session welcomes research on any coated products that fall into the above categories; however, components used in automotive, aerospace, mining, oil drilling equipment, manufacturing, construction machinery, and other machine parts are the primary interest of this session. The main criteria is, the coatings should be applied to semi/end products to enable/improve desired physical/chemical properties of the surface of the components which are already used or ready to be used in industrial applications.

G3. Innovative Surface Engineering for Advanced Cutting and Forming Tool Applications

Session Chairs

Ali Khatibi, Oerlikon Balzers, Oerlikon Surface Solutions AG, Liechtenstein, ali.khatibi@oerlikon.com
Heidrun Klostermann, Fraunhofer Institute for Electron Beam and Plasma Technology, FEP, Germany, heidrun.klostermann@fep.fraunhofer.de
Holger Gerdes, Fraunhofer IST, Germany, holger.gerdes@ist.fraunhofer.de

The requirements of manufacturing industries and recent innovative developments in coatings and surface engineering processes for advanced tooling applications are the focus of this session. Such applications include but are not limited to high demanding sheet or bulk metal forming, plastics processing, die-casting as well as cutting operations of steel, cast iron and difficult-to-cut materials like high temperature alloys or carbon fiber reinforced polymers (CFRP). Novelties related to the use of coating technologies like PVD (arc evaporation, sputtering, HIPIMS), hybrid deposition methods, electron beam techniques as well as PECVD and CVD for application oriented design of different coating materials, architectures and properties are welcome. Insights into the combined effect of tool geometry and adapted coatings are also in the focus of the present session. Furthermore, contributions highlighting the interaction of the coatings designed for cutting and forming applications with the ambient atmosphere and/or the counterpart materials including metallic alloys and polymers are within the focus of this session.

Chris H. Stoessel, Eastman Chemical Company, USA, stoessel@attglobal.et

This session focuses on the latest developments for coatings with thermochemical diffusion and other substrate/surface pre-treatment methods, and plasma-assisted coating (or coating post-treatment) processes which incorporate novel, or integrated, treatment technology combinations (diffusional, electrochemical, physical, mechanical, and other approaches) adapted to specific coatings and their applications within the areas of cutting, forming, precision components, or automotive. Topics include but are not limited to coating surface physical, chemical, mechanical, and other novel substrate preparation and pre-treatment methods for various applications; substrate nitriding, carburizing, boriding, or oxidation pre-treatments; intermediate etching treatment and interlayer design during the coating processes; coating post-treatments, including laser-based treatments, annealing, ion implantation or mechanical/chemical/optical techniques; and integrated and/or novel treatments and process combinations. Papers dealing with aspects relating to properties, processes, performance, equipment and industrial applications for such treatments are welcome.

G5. Hybrid Coatings and Hybrid System Processes

Session Chairs

Hana Barankova, Uppsala University, Sweden, hana.barankova@angstrom.uu.se
Sang-Yul Lee, Korea Aerospace University, Korea, sylee@kau.ac.kr

This session focuses on novel methods that employ combinations of several processes and systems during film deposition. Hybrid systems can combine different ionization sources, like lasers, hot filaments, hollow cathodes, electron- or ion-guns, etc. with conventional magnetrons or arc evaporators, in order to provide increased ionization, additional heating of the substrate, or to change the distribution of plasma density in the reactor. Hybrid processes can integrate different mechanisms of production of species for film deposition, for example PVD with PE-CVD. Hybrid systems can also combine different gas pressures, including atmospheric plasma activation, can use pulsed gas inflows synchronized with pulsed power, different forms of pulses, etc. Contributions on organic-inorganic hybrid coatings and hybrid processes both at reduced and atmospheric pressures are solicited.

G6. Application-Driven Cooperation between Industry and Research Institutions


Session Chairs

Industrial research and development is often driven by commercial interests and the current market conditions. Although the long term industrial benefits often depend from the detailed understanding and generation of basic know-how, in many cases industry is limited by their research capacity and analytical instrumentation. On the other hand, universities and government sponsored research laboratories often offer in-depth characterization methods and associated skill sets and thus a huge potential to support industrial needs. Therefore, joint partnerships between industry and basic research institutions often yield optimum results with respect to future product development. The scope of this session is on the research results produced in cooperation between industry, research laboratories, and academia. One focus should be on companies which have the possibility to present current status and achievements, as well as to address future development trends. Academic institutions are highly encouraged to present results of background research or contributions aimed at the development of the tailored solutions to meet the industrial demands of thin film and hard coatings applications.
