First-time application of nanoparticles in the laser beam cladding nano-particles used so far in the production of scratch-resistant automotive paints or as UV protection in sunscreens. The number of applications is high however and the versatile properties. “The Nano-part project funded by the BMBF production technology for Nano-particle layers to tools”, which looked after Karlsruhe (PTKA) by the promoter is, deals with the application of nanotechnology in the field of plant engineering and demonstrating innovative applications in the printing and stamping. Target is the coating of rollers, which place high demands on the wear resistance in the printing industry. To the ennui to counteract Antigleit or not hydrophilic properties, ceramic nano particles in the coating process should be applied together with metal powder on the rollers. In the field of paper punching technology, however, is the realization of a resource-efficient and at the same time low-cost manufacture of abrasion resistant punch lines on thin substrate panels, which enables the stamping foil and paper materials, required.
SLM solutions as partners of the project in decisive contributes to the successful implementation of the objectives set by the BMBF. In collaboration with the laser Zentrum Hannover e.V., the company Kocher + Beck of Rotary-stamping technology and the company Avantys engineering is the laser beam cladding of steel-ceramic composite layers for the paper cutting technique tested. We can say at this stage that we are capable of making surface and local coatings of components with constant storage of micro / Nano particle mixtures by means of laser beam welding”, says Dr. Schwarze, scientific coordinator of the SLM Solutions GmbH. should the use of technology in the future to the material savings in the production of Rotationsstanzwerkzeugen and lead to a natural of environmental resources.” On May 8 and 9, the SLM Solutions GmbH in a community presence is the results with federated partners introduce the innovative project on the Rapid.Tech in Erfurt of the trade fair for product development by the production of a prototype to the direct production of the final product and its components on the stand 2-310.
