Processing chrome-cobalt alloys with HiPIMS

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.

A new star is born

In order to reduce weight while maintaining high strength in complex components, lightweight materials such as CFRP, GFRP and CFRP-titanium/CFRP-aluminum stacks have become indispensable in the construction of automobiles, aircrafts, wind turbines and sporting equipment.
