Anyone who thinks that diamond coatings are only suitable for shank tools and that PCD is always required on cutting inserts in corresponding applications is mistaken: Diamond coatings can also be used excellently for cutting inserts.
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.
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.
Headquartered at Himalayan foothills, IND-SPHINX Precision Ltd. manufactures high precision cutting tools for demanding applications ranging from printed circuit board (PCBs), semi-conductors to aerospace, medical and micro machining.
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.
