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.
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.
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.
Cutting inserts with HiPIMS premium coatings are the key to maximum performance for both standard applications and demanding machining tasks.
CFRP is revolutionizing the aviation industry – CemeCon diamond coatings are revolutionizing processing
Lightweight solutions just got even lighter in the aviation industry thanks to carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). Due to its low weight and high strength, the composite is increasingly replacing aluminum, the material used in aircraft construction up to now.
HiPIMS-coated indexable inserts have changed ways of thinking and working in die and mold making. Hard facts for best results – following its motto, the carbide and tool specialist Boehlerit, in collaboration with CemeCon
