Information  from MEHMET

MEHMET is a member within the Euro-MIC COST framework. This project is funded by the European Union and enables scientists to bridge knowledge and capabilities across countries and disciplines.

Summary of the experiences and competences of MEHMET

I am a professor of metallurgical and materials science engineering. I have been working on surface coating, casting, alloy development. I am interested in surface properties of metals including corrosion and wear.

Looking for help? MEHMET can help you with the following items

I have a laser surface coating laboratory. There is a 2 kW fiber laser coating machine in this laboratory. Our laser machine capabilities are listed below.
– Any type of metallic material can be surfaced with any desired metallic material,
– For a single pass, coating thickness can vary from 0.5 mm to 3 mm.
– From very small samples to large parts can be surfaced economically.
– Materials having different shapes can be surfaced.
– Metallic matrix composites (with or without ceramic particulates) can be produced on the surface,
– Mostly metallic powders are used for coating,
– Coatings are made for resistance to corrosion, wear, heat, erosion etc.
