Key Research Findings

Installation for electroerosive dispersion of IM KhFRC FEB RAS

Installation for electroerosive dispersion of IM KhFRC FEB RAS

Installation to produce nanostructured spherical particles by electro erosive dispersion of tungsten-cobalt alloys and other conductive materials in water and oil.

The method is based on the flow of spark discharges between pieces of the source material during the flow of a current pulse, leading to melting, mixing and rapid crystallization of small portions of the material. As a result, nanostructured particles of predominantly spherical shape are formed. The advantage of the method is the possibility of obtaining spherical nanostructured particles directly from pieces of any conductive materials without additional operations. The resulting powders can be used to produce alloys and coatings by powder metallurgy, additive technologies, and spraying.


Electrospark deposition of hardening coatings in granules (EGD)

Coating by electrospark processing in granules is carried out using electrically conductive granules, which act as a source of material for coating the cathode part through the polar transfer of the substance of the granules as a result of the action of electric discharges.

Advantages of EGD:

- EIL automation;

- processing of a curved surface;

- deposition in one stage;

- low cost of consumables.


Cooperation options:

Application of metal, amorphous, cermet and other coatings with high corrosion resistance, high wear resistance and heat resistance on any metal surface. Creation of installations for applying electrospark coatings in metal granules and mixtures of granules with powders on metal parts of any configuration.
