Increasing Static Friction with Laser


Flat and curved surfaces with the functionality of high static friction are increasingly needed for force-fitted nonslip power transmissions. This is especially true for con rod and cam structuring for high torque resistance or front face connections of sprockets, gears, or cam shaft adjustments. Expensive solutions such as diamond layers, diamond coatings, or form fitting design are increasingly being substituted. A modified laser process with defined exposed micro structures is the alternative for innovative manufacturing. Exposed micro melting burrs of smaller micrometer height with martensitic material structures are the precondition for the required high friction. So, such high static friction surfaces can be produced economically with repeatability of small tolerances in high-volume productions.
