Project partner Creative Nano (Cnano) has extensive expertise and experience on electrochemical methods (electroplating, anodization) allowing the company to develop, deliver and demonstrate excellent results in terms of composite coating production and functionality.
Within the NanoPAT project, the industrial partner Cnano, in close collaboration with BRAVE/MUG and IRIS, will adjust and install to its electroplating pilot line the OptoFluidic Force Induction (OF2i) and Turbidity Spectrometry (TUS) particle monitoring technologies respectively. The target is to detect and monitor the ceramic nanoparticle size and concentration within the electrolyte during operation. More details in Case Study 5.
The video below shows a quick presentation of the Electroplating Pilot Line for nano-composite coatings, starting from the pre-treatment process of surface and moving forward to the plating process.
