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.
Anyone who thinks that diamond coatings are only suitable for shank tools and that PCD is always required on cutting inserts in corresponding applications is mistaken: Diamond coatings can also be used excellently for cutting inserts.
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.
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.
Tools of the highest quality are required to ensure economical and reliable production in hard machining. The right partner for such demanding projects is SARTORIUS Tools GmbH & Co. KG.
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.
Machining sintered carbide more conomically - milling instead of eroding with CCDia®CarbideSpeed®.
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!
