The second joint workshop by the community committee of the DFO, DGO, EFDS and INPLAS



The united committee “combined surface technology” organized the second workshop “Platings for wind power stations” at 17th September 2013 at the Fraunhofer Forum in Berlin. The common objectives were exchanging informations about new combined platings just as discussing results of research.




The changing pressures in the daily routine are the most damage causales of wind power stations. On the other hand, the requirements to wind power stations are increasing because of the rising requirements due to effort and efficiency. Because of that it is very important to minimize Non-working-episodes as well as maintenance-outlay and reparation-outlay. This means a very high innovative pressure creating new surface- and material-systems, which can fulfill all those requirements.




One of the topics the workshop took care about were the new surface-technical developments, like plating and sensors in the domains gearing, storing and sealing. Producer of wind power stations, sealings, Energy-companies, Deliverer and researching institutes now can solve the problems with common concepts.

The topics of the workshop were:

  • Platings for wearing-protection and reducing friction
  • Material-optimization with thermo treatment
  • Influences of topography
  • Choosing the materials – Construction – Damage-builder
  • Sensoric functions, thin layer sensoric


All those manifold recitations were visited by a lot of interested persons.
