Micro tools

Long tool life and best surface quality

Because of their low weight and high load-bearing capacity, fiber composite materials (FRP) are being used in more and more applications. HPTec GmbH from Ravensburg is one of the world's leading specialists when it comes to the anything but simple machining of such high-performance materials.

Ultra thin and extremely smooth

In the fields of electronics and medical technologies, the high-precision machining of the smallest components, with tools that are only a few millimeters or even tenths of a millimeter thick, is the key to innovation – now more than ever.

HiPIMS brings the advantage

The Chinese market is growing, including industries such as the car production and the 3C (computer, communication, consumer electronics) industry. Efficient tools are essential for processing complex and small components.

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.
