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.
Our customer ZECHA wins the 2021 Baden-Württemberg State Innovation Award with a new type of diamond-coated micro-precision tool. The State Innovation Award – the Dr. Rudolf Eberle Award – was one of the first prizes to be awarded for innovation in Germany.
Customized diamond coatings for all applications. A premium coating is the result of numerous options that CemeCon, together with the manufacturer, precisely matches to the application and the precision tool.
Tailored coatings bring the decisive advantage. Tool manufacturers who come to the CemeCon coating center in Nagoya, Japan, are often looking for a solution in a highly competitive market to increase their profits with premium coatings for their precision tools.
Stepper takes a giant step forward in stainless steel processing with InoxaCon®. Hardly any product has been in such demand in the past two years as electronic components – no electronics without plugs and plug contacts.
More performance in the machining of hardened steel for injection molds. In tool and mold making, the machining of hardened steels beyond 50 HRC is standard. It nevertheless remains a discipline for specialists, especially for manufacturers of precision tools.
Kanne secures competitive advantages in medical technology with the CC800® HIPIMS. In medical technology, precision and safety have top priority – both for the doctor performing the work and for implants and tools.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
In order to enable the local industry to make a performance leap in thread production, Chinese tool manufacturers can now have their HSS taps and formers coated with the new HiPIMS coating material TapCon®Gold at the CemeCon coating center in Suzhou.
Because of their low weight and high load-bearing capacity, fiber composite materials (FRP) are being used in more and more applications. HPTec GmbH from Ravensburg is one of the world's leading specialists when it comes to the anything but simple machining of such high-performance materials.
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.
