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.
Whoever decides in favor of a turnkey coating system including peripherals from CemeCon receives more than just first-class technology.
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
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.
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.
A key to success for globally producing tool manufacturers is consistent quality. CemeCon adapts the coating solutions to customer-specific requirements.
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.
Replaceable head systems are an increasingly popular alternative to conventional shank tools in machining. They score with high repeat accuracy and short non-productive times, as the base frame can remain in the spindle and only the cutting head is replaced.
From machines, to stair railings, to cutlery, to automobiles, ships and aircrafts – stainless steel can be found in almost all areas of everyday life, i.e. wherever the material is exposed to environmental influences and must not rust.
