The byko-test MPOR is specially designed for measuring very thin coatings. Its dual sensor with magnetic-inductive Fe and NFe probe automatically recognizes the substrate.  Also, premagnetized substrates, which among others are used in the automotive industry, do not influence the readings. The readings are displayed on two illuminated LCD displays: one large one on the front panel and another on the top.  Data can be easily read even on measured parts, which are difficult to reach.  An integrated radio transmitter transfers the readings wirelessly to the computer with an optional radio receiver. Furthermore, the test displays the status and indicates if the measured value is within specification. The memory has space for 999 measured values. Additionally, statistic functions facilitate the processing of the measured data.

Can Electroplated Fe-C be an Environmentally Friendly Alternative to Hard Chromium and DLC Coatings?

Electroplated FeC is an efficient surface treatment based on non-aggressive chemicals with a deposition rate of ~20 μm/h at a process temperature of 50°C.  The FeC coating is carbide-free and temperature stable up to ~250°C with a hardness of 750 HV, which is comparable to frequently applied hardened steels.  The FeC coating has reasonable friction properties and have high affinity towards lubricants because of incorporated amorphous carbon.  Hence, for certain applications, the FeC coating might be an interesting wear-protective alternative to hard chromium and to PVD-deposited low-friction diamond-like carbon coatings (DLC’s), which are rather difficult and costly to deposit on larger items.
