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.
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.
Lafer SpA is the largest Italian coating center that provides PVD and CVD premium coatings. CemeCon sputter technology has been used for cutting tool coatings for almost a quarter of a century.
Cutting inserts with HiPIMS premium coatings are the key to maximum performance for both standard applications and demanding machining tasks.
Milling and turning cutting inserts, any way you like. They machine all imaginable components: whether gears for wind turbines weighing several tons or turbine blades for aircraft engines.
Endoprosthetics is a growth area. Increasing life expectancy, extreme sports with greater risk of injury or deterioration due to obesity are the reasons for the increasing number of joint implants. During their manufacture from complex chrome-cobalt alloys, HiPIMS-coated tools provide the surface quality that is essential to medical applications.
