Ph.D., Associate Professor 

The Resource Centre was established to pursue pioneering research in the field of powder metallurgy. The Centre offers services in powder forming, developing multifunctional and gradient coatings by laser cladding.

What we do:

  • Develop competitive powder forming technologies and materials
  • Research and develop powder materials (metal and non-metal), including:
    • composite materials
    • hard-to-deform materials
    • materials with high-melting points
    • fire-retardant materials
    • corrosion resistant materials
    • nanostructured materials
    • carbon and graphite materials
  • Design metal forming tools
  • Develop additive manufacturing technologies (laser cladding, thermal spraying)
  • Develop powder-based multifunctional and gradient coatings for various applications
