The high-precision machining of the smallest components with tools that are only a few millimetres or even tenths of a millimetre thick is more than ever the key to innovation, for example in electronics or medical technology.
Three CemeCon colleagues, equipped with nose-mouth masks in accordance with the current situation, stand in front of the webcam and welcome the contact persons of an interested tool manufacturer. In the last few weeks, such processes have not only picked up speed but have also become quite routine.
In these extraordinary times, we keep both our quality and service promises.
Anyone standing in front of the new ProTech Innovation Center and the metal dinosaur immediately knows which direction the manufacturer of cutting tools and coatings from Slovakia has taken: Premium.
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.
The company name Achteck is closely linked to the lucky number in China. The manufacturer from Ganzhou, China, proved to have a lucky hand with its cutting inserts for machining stainless steel – with a CC800® HiPIMS and the coating material InoxaCon®.
A key to success for globally producing tool manufacturers is consistent quality. CemeCon adapts the coating solutions to customer-specific requirements.
Every year, more than one billion taps and thread formers are produced worldwide – for many years, most of them have been coated with traditional TiN and TiCN coatings, unchanged in most cases.
On August 1st, 2019, Marjorie Steed was appointed President of CemeCon Inc. Leading the North American branch office, she and her team will increasingly nurture new markets and open up revolutionary HiPIMS technology to new users.
Optimizing components for combustion engines is part of Robert Bosch GmbH's daily bread. In particular, the company focuses on injectors to further reduce pollutant emissions and fuel consumption.
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.
Whoever decides in favor of a turnkey coating system including peripherals from CemeCon receives more than just first-class technology.
Marjorie Steed has held several titles at CemeCon Inc., during her 14-year career. As of August 1, 2019, she added one more title: President.
HiPIMS is the coating technology of the future and opens up enormous possibilities. In Horseheads (USA), CemeCon customers were able to experience the full production process and the benefits of the technology up close at three live events
For a long time it was technically inconceivable, but CemeCon has now perfected very thick PVD coatings with FerroCon®Quadro. Coatings up to 12 μm can be realized with firm adhesion!
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.
The Chinese market for cutting inserts offers enormous opportunities among tough competition. Only innovative solutions make a supplier stand out from the crowd.
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.
Cutting inserts are used in many different applications, for example, when rough machining steel materials with high removal rates or when finishing high-precision components made of aluminium.
Located in the center of India's high-tech industry, AddLife Coating Systems Pvt. Ltd. has become an important driver in the coatings industry over the last six years.
Future markets for cutting tools include medical technology, consumer electronics and aerospace engineering. Materials that are difficult to machine are commonplace in those areas.
HiPIMS-coated indexable inserts have changed ways of thinking and working in die and mold making. Hard facts for best results – following its motto, the carbide and tool specialist Boehlerit, in collaboration with CemeCon
The aerospace industry paves the way for new materials and material combinations. After all, airplanes must be made lighter and more resource- efficient, and it is only innovative tool systems that can help with cost-effective processing.
For sophisticated high-tech products, only turned parts that are perfect are good enough. As one of the market leaders in Europe, Grieshaber GmbH & Co. KG in Schiltach (Germany) is the preferred supplier when aluminum or stainless steel turned parts with the highest quality, precision and optics are required.
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.
Straight and white teeth give you a wonderful smile. We look well-kempt and friendly to others. It's understandable that many people want perfectly looking dental implants.
Global market conditions demand more and more custom solutions – excellent responsiveness, high speed, great flexibility and sustainability are indispensable for survival in the international arena.
Paul Horn GmbH has frequently proved that it has a good sense for the changing requirements of the market. The pioneering company, a trendsetter and visionary in precision tools, is quick and flexible, able to deliver customized solutions in tight tolerances.
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.
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.
