ELB at the 64th German Tribology Conference
25 September 2023
September 25 – September 27, 2023 in Göttingen, Germany
As part of the 64th German Tribology Conference taking place this week in Göttingen, our colleague Mr. Sharma, is presenting the poster “Synthesis and Characterization of PEO Coatings for various Tribological Applications on 3D printed Magnesium Alloy".
The poster explores the synthesis and characterization of PEO surfaces for various tribological applications on 3D printed magnesium alloy (WE43). Surface wear is a significant challenge in tribological applications, especially for light metals in automotive, aerospace, and medical industry. PEO surfaces, produced by varying process parameters, exhibit superior mechanical, tribological, and corrosion protection properties. The research focuses on characterization of various PEO surfaces and their dependencies on tribological properties under differently loaded conditions. Initial wear studies show minimal to no surface wear under extreme loading conditions, with a 1000x decrease in wear volume. CERANOD ® PEO surfaces are suitable for harsh wear applications and corrosive media.
