Automotive, aerospace, medical technology – high-tech industries depend on first-class precision tools for the process-reliable, high-precision and, last but not least, economical production of their components from materials that are often difficult to machine.
“The results we are achieving with the unparalleled PVD coatings on our tools are fantastic and have convinced us so much that we have invested in an additional PVD system.” Jorge Ferreira, CEO at Palbit, is enthusiastic.
Wherever thick chips fall, for example in the heavy-duty machining of rails, switches, pipes and crankshafts, as well as in the rotary peeling of cast iron and ferrous materials, high-performance cutting inserts with long tool lives and good performance are an absolute must.
If you want to produce outstanding precision tools that are ahead of the competition, you need top-class technology in all facets of tool manufacturing – not least in coating.
HiPIMS is conquering the markets as a coating technology. A few years ago, when this technology was first introduced, CemeCon in particular set industry standards as a technology leader and pioneer.
Milling or die sinking? This question arises almost daily in tool and die making when it comes to the production of punches, dies, injection molds or similar. Unfortunately, there is no one true machining strategy for all eventualities. Diverse requirements determine which process achieves the desired results.
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.
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.
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.
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.
