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.

AluCon®: The best for non-ferrous metals

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.

Palbit wins new markets thanks to a new generation of coatings

“The results we are achieving with the unparalleled PVD coatings on our tools are fantastic and have convinced us so much that we have invested in an additional PVD system.” Jorge Ferreira, CEO at Palbit, is enthusiastic.

Best surface finishes and stable processes

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.

Diamond coatings can do all that!

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.

Always the right solution for tool and mold makers

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.
