In the fields of electronics and medical technologies, the high-precision machining of the smallest components, with tools that are only a few millimeters or even tenths of a millimeter thick, is the key to innovation – now more than ever.
Because of their low weight and high load-bearing capacity, fiber composite materials (FRP) are being used in more and more applications. HPTec GmbH from Ravensburg is one of the world's leading specialists when it comes to the anything but simple machining of such high-performance materials.
Personal consultation, coating app, order tracking, online live batch: CemeCon supports customers and interested parties in a wide variety of ways.
Anyone who thinks that diamond coatings are only suitable for shank tools and that PCD is always required on cutting inserts in corresponding applications is mistaken: Diamond coatings can also be used excellently for cutting inserts.
High coating thicknesses for cutting inserts have always been a specialty of CemeCon. HiPMS has again significantly expanded the possibilities here. The process can be used to produce coating thicknesses between 1 and 12 µm.
Heavy-duty machining is demanding – maximum cutting volumes, without sacrificing good surface quality, requires high feed rates and extreme wear. The company that can offer longer tool life and the best performance will quickly outpace the competition.
In order to enable the local industry to make a performance leap in thread production, Chinese tool manufacturers can now have their HSS taps and formers coated with the new HiPIMS coating material TapCon®Gold at the CemeCon coating center in Suzhou.
Tools of the highest quality are required to ensure economical and reliable production in hard machining. The right partner for such demanding projects is SARTORIUS Tools GmbH & Co. KG.
The JETRO TV media program "The World is Now" has interviewed CemeCon K.K. in the newly build coating center in Nagoya.
The JETRO TV media program "The World is Now" has interviewed CemeCon K.K. in the newly build coating center in Nagoya. All CemeCon members were very excited and proud to show the big achievements since the company establishment in 2016.
Machining sintered carbide more conomically - milling instead of eroding with CCDia®CarbideSpeed®.
The high-precision machining of the smallest components with tools that are only a few millimetres or even tenths of a millimetre thick is more than ever the key to innovation, for example in electronics or medical technology.
Three CemeCon colleagues, equipped with nose-mouth masks in accordance with the current situation, stand in front of the webcam and welcome the contact persons of an interested tool manufacturer. In the last few weeks, such processes have not only picked up speed but have also become quite routine.
In these extraordinary times, we keep both our quality and service promises.
After completion of the new building in Nagoya, the new coating center in Japan started production. Since the beginning of January, CemeCon has been supporting its customers there with diamond coating services.
On August 1st, 2019, Marjorie Steed was appointed President of CemeCon Inc. Leading the North American branch office, she and her team will increasingly nurture new markets and open up revolutionary HiPIMS technology to new users.
A key to success for globally producing tool manufacturers is consistent quality. CemeCon adapts the coating solutions to customer-specific requirements.
Whoever decides in favor of a turnkey coating system including peripherals from CemeCon receives more than just first-class technology.
When it comes to really thick coatings, manufacturers of cutting inserts have so far had no choice but to resort to the CVD coating process, which is very limited in its possibilities.
Every year, more than one billion taps and thread formers are produced worldwide – for many years, most of them have been coated with traditional TiN and TiCN coatings, unchanged in most cases.
Anyone standing in front of the new ProTech Innovation Center and the metal dinosaur immediately knows which direction the manufacturer of cutting tools and coatings from Slovakia has taken: Premium.
The company name Achteck is closely linked to the lucky number in China. The manufacturer from Ganzhou, China, proved to have a lucky hand with its cutting inserts for machining stainless steel – with a CC800® HiPIMS and the coating material InoxaCon®.
Optimizing components for combustion engines is part of Robert Bosch GmbH's daily bread. In particular, the company focuses on injectors to further reduce pollutant emissions and fuel consumption.
Located in the center of India's high-tech industry, AddLife Coating Systems Pvt. Ltd. has become an important driver in the coatings industry over the last six years.
Internal thread production – whether through hole or blind hole – is one of the most challenging cutting tasks. It is particularly important as one of, if not the last, machining step. Process reliability is the top priority in order not to waste the almost completed component.
Japan is one of the leading technology countries in the world. Many developments are driven forward there or in collaboration with Japanese companies. This is not different in the tool industry.
HiPIMS is the coating technology of the future and opens up enormous possibilities. In Horseheads (USA), CemeCon customers were able to experience the full production process and the benefits of the technology up close at three live events
Cutting inserts are used in many different applications, for example, when rough machining steel materials with high removal rates or when finishing high-precision components made of aluminium.
The Chinese market for cutting inserts offers enormous opportunities among tough competition. Only innovative solutions make a supplier stand out from the crowd.
For a long time it was technically inconceivable, but CemeCon has now perfected very thick PVD coatings with FerroCon®Quadro. Coatings up to 12 μm can be realized with firm adhesion!
Marjorie Steed has held several titles at CemeCon Inc., during her 14-year career. As of August 1, 2019, she added one more title: President.
