Know-how gets a boost

Only those who are aware of their capabilities can advise and support their customers well. This is why the application engineers from ARNO Werkzeuge spent a day at the coating center in Würselen

A new star is born

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.

Best choice for stainless steels

From machines, to stair railings, to cutlery, to automobiles, ships and aircrafts – stainless steel can be found in almost all areas of everyday life, i.e. wherever the material is exposed to environmental influences and must not rust.

Optimal protection for heads with HiPIMS

Replaceable head systems are an increasingly popular alternative to conventional shank tools in machining. They score with high repeat accuracy and short non-productive times, as the base frame can remain in the spindle and only the cutting head is replaced.

Diamond on the rise

Diamond coatings are indispensable for the economical machining of graphite, green sintered carbide, composites, high-silicon aluminum and metal matrix composites.
