Process reliability

Coating technology up close

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

TapCon®Gold – The coating for the perfect thread

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.

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.

New twist to tap drills

High-quality equipment, a motivated and well-trained team, as well as an international focus are the pivotal cornerstones of the growth strategy of Fabryka Narzedzi FANAR S.A. in the production of their tap drills. When the tool manufacturer wanted to incorporate coating technology into its production, it found the right solution with CemeCon's sputter technology.

Optimal protection for heads with HiPIMS

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.
