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.
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.
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.
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.
