Project: Advanced Tribological Surface Engineering Solution for High Performance Bearings

Acronym TRIBOSS (Reference Number: 11444)
Duration 01/11/2017
Project Topic Develop an advanced tribological surface engineering solution to prevent White Etching Crack (WEC) tapered rolling bearing (TRB) failures in wind turbine gearboxes. Innovative approach combining Laser Surface Texturing (LST) and High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering (HiPIMS) & DC-Magneton Sputtering (DCMS) is proposed, where new developments (Spatial Light Modulator -SLM-) on LST industrial upscaling and synthesis of tailor made tribological coating architecture will be properly assessed.
