Based in Ciechanów, Poland, Fabryka Narzędzi FANAR S.A. is continuing to grow steadily. The first step into in-house coatings for taps was a CemeCon sputter coating line two years ago.
Diamond coatings are indispensable for the economical machining of graphite, green sintered carbide, composites, high-silicon aluminum and metal matrix composites.
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.
Now 50 employees can work on an area of 3,700 m² to fulfill customer orders in the field of PVD and diamond coating for precision tools. Greater production capacity means even faster availability for both premium technologies on the important North American market.
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.
Lightweight materials are praised for their low weight and high strength and stability. And when it comes to machining, they are true heavyweights.
The aerospace industry paves the way for new materials and material combinations. After all, airplanes must be made lighter and more resource- efficient, and it is only innovative tool systems that can help with cost-effective processing.
