TapCon®Gold – The coating for the perfect thread

Internal thread production – whether through hole or blind hole – is one of the most challenging cutting tasks. It is particularly important as one of, if not the last, machining step. Process reliability is the top priority in order not to waste the almost completed component.

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.

The decisive advantage

Flexibility, the highest quality and short delivery times – with customized tool solutions and small batches: an in-house coating line brings a lot of advantages.

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.

New twist to tap drills

High-quality equipment, a motivated and well-trained team, as well as an international focus are the pivotal cornerstones of the growth strategy of Fabryka Narzedzi FANAR S.A. in the production of their tap drills. When the tool manufacturer wanted to incorporate coating technology into its production, it found the right solution with CemeCon's sputter technology.

CCDia®HiSpeed: all the best combined

Heat dissipation, oxidation resistance, stability, running in behavior, conductivity – the combination of the two leading CemeCon technologies – HiPIMS and diamond – enables an entire new class of coating materials.
