Abstract (technical / expert description):

In 1995, we started research and development of CVD diamond coatings on silicon carbide ball bearings and piston rings.

In 2002 the know-how gained in Bavarian research projects was successfully transferred into industrial applications by the start-up of DiaCCon (Fürth, Germany).
