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.
Residual stress management
Coating an extremely costly individual piece from high-tech markets under high time pressure is the nightmare of every production manager – and TEandM's successful business model.
Heavy-duty machining is demanding – maximum cutting volumes, without sacrificing good surface quality, requires high feed rates and extreme wear. The company that can offer longer tool life and the best performance will quickly outpace the competition.
When it comes to really thick coatings, manufacturers of cutting inserts have so far had no choice but to resort to the CVD coating process, which is very limited in its possibilities.
The company name Achteck is closely linked to the lucky number in China. The manufacturer from Ganzhou, China, proved to have a lucky hand with its cutting inserts for machining stainless steel – with a CC800® HiPIMS and the coating material InoxaCon®.
