Modification of mechanical, electrical, thermal, chemical, optical, haptic, biological and other properties of light metals on an industrial scale.
Surface as a micro-composite material
Welcome to the new technical age!
METAKER® Surface is a new, powerful, economical technology that has been available on an industrial scale since 2010 for the electrochemical-chemical conversion of light metal surfaces into a unique, microstructured, activated and multifunctional gradient material.
METAKER® offers several advantages compared to similar processes such as micro arc oxidation, plasma oxidation, plasma ceramics, and plasma electrolytic oxidation under spark discharge.
Also in comparison to other surface technologies such as anodizing, chromating, Chem-Ni chromating, painting, and many more, it is possible to develop a functional, qualitative and economic surface.
METAKER® Surface is an internationally joint technology with several global unique selling points and focus on Industry 4.0. It puts the product and process developers in a new paradigm and opens up previously unthinkable innovative potentials:
- Functional improvements and new application potential of light metals
- Substitution of heavy and expensive materials by modified light metals
- Formation of novel hybrid materials
- Development of new product and process innovations
- Development of novel convergent technologies
Surface as design element
METAKER® Surface process converts the surface layers of light metals into a unique, high-performance, multifunctional, metal-ceramic composite.
By changing the process parameters, as well as the material properties (function) as well as the combinations of such (multifunctionality) can be adjusted application-specific.
This makes the surface a design element that opens up new potential for the industrial use of light metals.
