Title: New electron-beam equipment and technologies for production of advanced materials using vaccum melting and evaporation methods developed at SPE “ELTEKHMASH”
Biography: A Manulyk
At the end of 60-th beginning of 70-th years in the Electric welding institute named after Paton (National Academy of Science) in Ukraine, the new method of thick (more than 50 microns) film coatings was developed through rapid electron-beam evaporation and further condensation in vacuum for metals and non-metals materials. However, until recently unique opportunities of this method for obtaining of absolutely new materials like high-hardening, micro-layer, micro-porous types, gradient function materials haven't been explored. The recently founded research and production enterprise "ELTECHMASH" in Vinnitsa (Ukraine) elaborates new ways for evaporation and condensation processes, as well as widening mentioned above application in the practical field. Today our company develops such directions of electron-beam technology as; Electron-beam deposition of coatings; Electron-beam deposition of wear-resisting and high-hardening coatings on the tools, stamps, press- form, etc; Special electric-conductivity and optical coatings deposition; New composite materials created from a steam phase; Producing of composition materials of nanocrystalline type based on copper, chrome, molybdenum, tungsten, carbon for all types of electrical contacts (sliding, arc-suppressing, gas discharge glowing). Producing the special metallic and ceramic powders for the thermo-spray and cold spray powdered coatings. Producing of targets for magnetron dispersion; Electron-beam re-melting, reduction, purification of metals and alloys; Design and mounting of the research and industrial equipment for mentioned above purposes; Today "ELTECHMASH" successfully cooperates with many companies in Ukraine, Russia, South Korea, China, Germany, Romania, Poland. The enterprise has modern equipment and highly skilled experts for any scientific and practical tasks solutions.
