Anyone standing in front of the new ProTech Innovation Center and the metal dinosaur immediately knows which direction the manufacturer of cutting tools and coatings from Slovakia has taken: Premium.
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®.
The Chinese market for cutting inserts offers enormous opportunities among tough competition. Only innovative solutions make a supplier stand out from the crowd.
For a long time it was technically inconceivable, but CemeCon has now perfected very thick PVD coatings with FerroCon®Quadro. Coatings up to 12 μm can be realized with firm adhesion!
