STUDIES ON THE POSSIBILITIES OF NANOMATERIALS TREATMENT OF VERTICAL CUTTERS FOR WEAR REDUCTION
In the paper are presented the studies performed for reduction of the wear, of the vertical milling cutters during the soil working process, by coating them with nanomaterials. The nanomaterials consist of structurally definable components with dimensions from 1 to 100 nanometers (1nm = 10 -9m). The coatings which could be applied on vertical milling cutters may contain the following nanomaterials: iron oxide, silicon dioxide, carbon black, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide and silver. Conclusions have been drawn and proposals have been made regarding other technical improvement solutions.
