A rising demand for state-of-the-art coating solutions for cutting tool components
Coating tools increases their performance across almost all machining applications and enables cost-effective processing of modern materials, such as fibre-glass reinforced plastics, magnesium and aluminium, which are standard in both the aerospace industry and the automotive manufacturing sector.
Developing a coating that meets our customers' needs
Our engineers work closely with our customers to develop high-tech coating solutions that meet various requirements. Our expertise in coating design is based on our many years of experience in the field, as well as the development of existing coating materials. At CemeCon we give our engineers the freedom to develop new ideas. This results in the creation of astounding technical feats, some of which prove to be groundbreaking – not only in terms of the individual coatings that are applied to high-performance instruments, but also in terms of the leading coating technologies on the market. CemeCon stands for pure innovative power.
System technology and peripherals for coating development and production
The CC800®/9 flexible coating system forms the core of our system technology. Its modular structure offers a wide range of options for modification and expansion: from small-scale manufacturing to entire production lines for PVD sputter and diamond coatings. As well as our coating systems, we also produce peripherals designed for coating development and production. All of our coating systems are developed and produced in house.
Bringing us closer to our overseas customers
CemeCon opened its USA office in 1998. CemeCon Inc, based in Horseheads in the state of New York, uses our Application Development Center (ADC) to allow customers access to CemeCon's coating technology. This acts as a base to pass on knowledge and train technicians on how to use tried and tested processes and technical expertise developed in Würselen.
CemeCon has also been active in China since 2003. Baoding CemeCon Coating Technology Co. Ltd delivers reliable top-quality, state-of-the-art coating solutions from its two coating centres, one in Suzhou and another in Beijing. Baoding CemeCon Coating Technology Co. Ltd provides coatings for cutting tools, dies, components and accessories for the electronics industry and as such plays an important role in the development of the Chinese industrial sector.
CemeCon technology is also in high demand on the Czech market. Together with its partner, CemeCon s.r.o, CemeCon ensures customers here also have access to the best service and highest technological expertise.
In every field, all our partners and subsidiaries deliver a level of production quality equal to that produced by CemeCon AG in Würselen; this is true for both our high-level coating solutions and our proven system technology.
