The project aims to develop energy-efficient technology of applying a hard chromium coating on rotating parts. This method lowers energy consumption of moving parts and machinery, reduces the need to replace parts frequently, leading to reduced waste and improved efficiency. Closed-loop chromium plating allows to reduce exposure and minimise environmental pollution.

The project enables to bring substantial benefit to metallurgical and mechanical engineering industries in Russia.

The project’s originality is in the possibility of developing chromium plating of big-sized rotating cylindrical parts for various industries where there is a need for increasing the wear and corrosion resistance of machines, mechanisms, and devices (e.g. mechanical engineering, instrumentation engineering, heavy engineering).

Project Results

  • Development of the specialised lab facility for hard chromium plating of big-sized rotating parts (up to 320 mm in diameter and up to 4 000 mm in length).
  • The developed technology and lab facility might be used by Ural Engineering Center for the application of a hard chromium coating on rolling mill rolls and hydraulic cylinders.
  • The technology can be implemented in machine tool manufacturing industry within a short time and with minimum expenses as it does not require expensive equipment.
