67th Annual SVC Technical Conference • May 6 - 9, 2024

Name: C-320 Diamond Like Carbon Coatings-From Basics to Industrial Realization Date: Tuesday, May 7, 2024 Time: 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Our colleague, Lars Haubold from Fraunhofer USA CMW-CD, alongside Martin Keunecke and Christian Stein from Fraunhofer IST, is teaching this important tutorial:


This tutorial is recommended for engineers and R&D staff members, who are involved in specifying new designs and surface treatments for components and tools. The application of Diamond Like Carbon, often in combination with pre-treatments like plasma nitriding and polishing, allows much improved wear resistance (abrasive, adhesive, fatigue) and to reduction of friction forces. Under the umbrella name of DLC, various classes of coatings have been developed, where each class of coatings has its own deposition technology and coating characteristics.

The industrial applications are presently mainly in components for e.g. automotive, aerospace, general machine building.
