Surface Modification by a Flexible Tool. 2. Practical Use of Coating Application by Rotary Wire Brushes


The influence of various factors on the strengthening, restoration and strengthening of metal surfaces by frictional cladding is investigated. Applying electric current intensifies the process. The coating thickness and plasticity are also increased.
