  • Diamond-like nanocomposite coatings (a-C:H/a-Si:O) for tribological applications
    Diamond and Related Materials, 1998
    Co-Authors: D Neerinck, P Persoone, Marc Sercu, A. Goel, Digban Kester, D Bray

    Abstract:

    Abstract Diamond-like nanocomposite (DLN) coatings (a-C:H/a-Si:O) are a particular class of modified diamond-like carbon coatings, which can be predominantly described as two interpenetrating amorphous networks, one network being a diamond-like a-C:H network and the other a glass-like a-Si:O network. Structural studies have been performed using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The two-network description of the atomic bonding state is investigated by analysing the CC, CSi and SiO contributions to the C 1s and Si 2p XPS photolines. Tribological properties have been measured using standard ball-on-disk tests against a steel counterbody at 10 N load, yielding a typical wear factor between 0.5 and 4 × 10−7 mm3 Nm−1. The coefficient of friction against steel is typically between 0.05 and 0.15, even in humid air and under water. The low-friction and low-wear DLN coatings, combined with low internal stress and good adhesion, make this type of coatings an excellent candidate for many tribological applications in the Automotive, Textile, chemical or biomedical industry.

The coefficient of friction against steel is typically between 0.05 and 0.15, even in humid air and under water. The low-friction and low-wear DLN coatings, combined with low internal stress and good adhesion, make this type of coatings an excellent candidate for many tribological applications in the Automotive, Textile, chemical or biomedical industry.

  • Mapping the Automotive Textile supply chain
    Textile Advances in the Automotive Industry, 2008
    Co-Authors: N. Powell, Robert Handfield, Ray Barnhardt

    Abstract:

    Information visibility is an essential element to improved supply chain performance. Without adequate sharing of information, firms are required to supplement the available information with other costly alternatives. This chapter follows the development of a convertible fabric material in the supply chain for a large Automotive assembler, beginning with a large Textile manufacturer in fabric formation to final assembly of the convertible top. The current level of information sharing in the supply chain is assessed and the effects of inefficient information flows between the various tiers of suppliers are determined. © 2008 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
