Objectives -MGM
The main objective of the TANDEM project is to develop a new generation of significantly improved well-adherent and hard DLC coatings with good temperature stability. The novel DLC coatings will combine high hardness (above 40 GPa), smooth surface and low internal stresses, and thus enable adherent thick coatings (thickness at least 3 μm).The novel hard DLC will be tested in operating conditions and developed for specific applications.

The specific objectives for the partner MGM are:
-Implementation of C-HiPIMS process at industrial scale, employing highly ionized carbon fluxes, on real size 3D samples
-Test the performance of DLC coatings on components under real operating conditions.
-Develop DLC deposition process for beneficiaries on Romanian and European market
