Short distances and the complete tool development process from a single source – this strategy has put Boehlerit from Kapfenberg, Austria, on course for growth. Gerhard Melcher, Sales Manager at Boehlerit, gets confirmation of this every day.
With strong investments in state-of-the-art, sustainable production capacities, in digitalization and in the service area, the tool manufacturer NACHREINER is making itself fit for current and future market challenges.
CFRP and GFRP, aluminum and titanium stacks, Peek, glass fiber-reinforced aluminum - if you want to machine modern materials reliably and at the same time faster and more precisely and with fewer machining steps, i.e. more productively, you need material-optimized tools and processes.
Graphite electrodes, dental implants, sporting goods, lightweight components for automotive or aerospace, punches and dies - diamond coatings are used in many different applications and materials.
Coating an extremely costly individual piece from high-tech markets under high time pressure is the nightmare of every production manager – and TEandM's successful business model.
Since the beginning of 2020, CemeCon K.K. has been supporting Japanese tool manufacturers with diamond coatings at its new coating center in Nagoya. Now the experts have expanded their range to include HiPIMS technology.
Milling or die sinking? This question arises almost daily in tool and die making when it comes to the production of punches, dies, injection molds or similar. Unfortunately, there is no one true machining strategy for all eventualities. Diverse requirements determine which process achieves the desired results.
Which coating material is good for which application? What is actually the difference between coating material and coating? What options do tool manufacturers have? What do you have to pay attention to before coating?
Whether in e-mobility, aerospace, for wind turbines, implants or sporting goods – anyone who wants to machine CFRP or GFRP economically needs high-quality precision tools with adapted coatings.
JETRO has launched a video series „Succeed together in Japan and beyond“ which introduces foreign companies succeeding in the local Japanese business environment.
High coating thicknesses for cutting inserts have always been a specialty of CemeCon. HiPMS has again significantly expanded the possibilities here. The process can be used to produce coating thicknesses between 1 and 12 µm.
Machining sintered carbide more conomically - milling instead of eroding with CCDia®CarbideSpeed®.
The JETRO TV media program "The World is Now" has interviewed CemeCon K.K. in the newly build coating center in Nagoya.
The JETRO TV media program "The World is Now" has interviewed CemeCon K.K. in the newly build coating center in Nagoya. All CemeCon members were very excited and proud to show the big achievements since the company establishment in 2016.
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.
After completion of the new building in Nagoya, the new coating center in Japan started production. Since the beginning of January, CemeCon has been supporting its customers there with diamond coating services.
Japan is one of the leading technology countries in the world. Many developments are driven forward there or in collaboration with Japanese companies. This is not different in the tool industry.
