I&DT EcoRods project

Projecto de I&DT - EcoRods

The EcoRods project aims to process a new carbide product with a gradient of controlled properties through the processing of a bimaterial cylinder consisting of a functional part, originating from an original powder of controlled composition and another part originating from powder residues.

The development of this product presents as an innovation the obtaining of a compositional and microstructural gradient that produces a gradient of mechanical properties with controlled characteristics. The solution proposed with the EcoRods project aims to achieve a more ecologically viable product combined with a gradient of mechanical properties, namely hardness, ductility and thermal stability that will enhance the performance and durability of cutting tools. The demonstration and dissemination of the results achieved under this project represent an important part in achieving the objectives of the work.
