Fraunhofer provides an integrated coating technology package that includes the high-performance coating Diamor, the modular coating system technology LaserArco, customized engineering development, technology transfer, and­ support services. Diamor is a wear-resistant amorphous diamond film with a very low coefficient of friction and high hardness. LaserArco coating technology is a modular system that can be deployed with existing or new vacuum coating machines. Coating process and system technologies can be acquired from Fraunhofer. The combination of the coating technology and the cost-efficient modular system with the tailoring of the applications and engineering is a suitable, targeted solution for powertrain wear issues. Fraunhofer partners with the customer to develop entirely new coating applications, implement the technology for prototyping and in production, and provide support after installation. Engine lifters, piston rings, turbocharger bearings, and wrist pins are examples of successfully tested components.
