Today, protection methods for high dynamically stressed components in mechanical, plant and automotive engineering involve either high weight (metals) or limited formability (ceramics). Currently, no composite material exists which combines the excellent properties of both material groups, such as maximal strength with good ductility. With the new ceramic components developed at Fraunhofer IKTS, in combination with cost-efficient brazing or bonding technologies, complex steel surfaces can be equipped now with ductile ceramic armoring (DuktAr), and thus innovative 3D protection methods can be realized. These methods can be implemented, for instance, in protective devices of centrifuges, rotors, recycling plants, or in high-speed cutting. With their
unique geometry, the ceramic components are particularly advantageous, since they can be assembled to areas of variable sizes, very much like puzzle pieces, thus maximizing the freedom of design.
