Instituto Pedro Nunes (IPN), through the Laboratory for Wear, Testing and Materials (LED&MAT), promoted, on March 15th, the SusSurf Workshop "Surface engineering for sustainable industrial applications", in collaboration with the Portuguese Society of Materials (SPM) and the Centre for Mechanical Engineering, Materials and Processes (CEMMPRE).
During the Sus Surf 2023 Workshop the potential of surface modification in different types of Engineering applications was discussed. Experts in this field, with great scientific competence in the development of surface modified materials and with strong expertise in transferring knowledge to industrial applications, shared their experience with the scientific and industrial communities. The examples presented involve different types of applications, from tools and moulds to the automotive, optical, and aeronautic industries.
After the presentations, there was an extended discussion during which all participants were able to present their technical challenges about this subject.
