heavy-duty cutting


HiPIMS opens up new markets

The world of machining is changing. With the transition from the internal combustion engine to alternative drive systems, traditional automotive manufacturing as the most important mainstay for many machining companies and tool manufacturers is being reduced enormously.


12 µm coating thickness for maximum wear volume

Wherever thick chips fall, for example in the heavy-duty machining of rails, switches, pipes and crankshafts, as well as in the rotary peeling of cast iron and ferrous materials, high-performance cutting inserts with long tool lives and good performance are an absolute must.


New possibilities 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.


Performance leap thanks to thick coatings

Heavy-duty machining is demanding – maximum cutting volumes, without sacrificing good surface quality, requires high feed rates and extreme wear. The company that can offer longer tool life and the best performance will quickly outpace the competition.
