Highlight-Lecture: Laser-applied high performance tribological coatings on light weight materials. To meet the increasing requirements of triboligical systems in e.g. the automotive power train we developed a laser-based coating process wherein the light weight substrate can be coated by laser sintering of a high performance polymer. This coating process reduces the heat influence on the substrate to a minimum so that unwanted effects like loss of hardness can be avoided.
