As a mechanical engineer, Prof Bobzin’s work is focused on coatings made of different metal alloys, as well as how they are made and applied. These coatings are crucial on e.g. cutting tools, because it makes them more efficient and increases overall productivity by allowing high-speed, high-performance cutting with a minimum of lubrication.
Recently she has published on various spray coating processes, coated gear systems and sensor coatings that help measure temperature in hard to reach places during manufacturing.
