FRICTION ENHANCEMENT by

plasma GRIPefc 

 

plasmaGRIPefc   LAYER  = Diamond or SiC particles individual deposit (“brazed”) on substrate surfaces

Increase of friction is a key technology in order to increase power efficiency.

Based on defined friction enhancement on slip-critical joints by SmartLayerPlasma technology the components can be optimized in terms of higher load transmission, less weightminimization in dimensions and no “fretting”  without any loss of power.
