Type of the organization / person: R&D
„EFTTOM”-Research Laboratory (Research Laboratory for „Electrophysical Technologies for Thermal Treatment of Metals“) is a scientific and research laboratory, part of the Department of Material Science and Technology of Materials at the Technical University of Sofia. The laboratory „EFTTOM” has been doing research in chemical-heat treatment in low temperature plasma, developing technologies for ion-nitriding and carbonitriding and producing equipment for nitriding and carbonitriding in a direct-current or pulsed glow discharge for more than 30 years. When this method is applied, treated work pieces and tools, preserve their geometric dimensions and shape but acquire high wear resistance and increased surface hardness. Ion-nitriding and carbonitriding processes have big advantages by which nitrided layers with different thickness and structure could be achieved.
Laboratory „EFTTOM“ develops complex engineering activity:
As seen from the above mentioned information, Laboratory „EFTTOM“ combines scientific research, production and implementation activities with students from the bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and provide conditions for the development of theses and dissertation
