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.
Whether for e-mobility or in aircraft construction – lightweight materials such as aluminum and titanium-aluminum alloys are increasingly being used to reduce weight. These high-performance materials pose special challenges for machinists, which they can only meet with precisely matched high-end tools.
Automotive, aerospace, medical technology – high-tech industries depend on first-class precision tools for the process-reliable, high-precision and, last but not least, economical production of their components from materials that are often difficult to machine.
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.
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.
Lightweight materials are praised for their low weight and high strength and stability. And when it comes to machining, they are true heavyweights.
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.
Now 50 employees can work on an area of 3,700 m² to fulfill customer orders in the field of PVD and diamond coating for precision tools. Greater production capacity means even faster availability for both premium technologies on the important North American market.
