  • Development of a cryogenic hybrid technology for manufacturing high-performance nanostructural surface layers 

The objective of the project is to develop a new, never before used cryogenic hybrid technology for manufacturing special-performance surface layers. The cryogenic, hybrid technology combines two currently most advanced laser-based processes of surface treatment i.e. laser pad welding and laser alloying, which, additionally, are carried out in cryogenic conditions to obtain surface layers of

increased durability. The new technology is developed through the implementation of a series of industrial research projects aiming at working out the conditions for cryogenic hybrid manufacturing of model surface layers. In further stages of the project, R&D works focused on the application of the technology to some actually used working parts of machines and tools to improve their characteristics such as hardness, abrasion and erosion resistance and impact strength were carried out.

  • The technology of 3D additive forming of components by local free laser melting of metal eco-material

This project involves the development of a completely new technology of additive forming of three dimensional metal parts by localized free laser melting (MSSL) of new additional material in the form of particles, called "metallic Eco-material". It makes it possible to produce parts in a wide range of dimensions and sizes, from small to large-sized parts and components. Additionally, thanks to the developed technology of producing the additional material, the costs of such material (EMM) will be considerably lower than the powders used in additives technologies such as SLS (Selective Laser Sintering), SLM (Selective Laser Melting), EBM and LMD (Laser Metal Deposition).
