Know-how gets a boost
Тool experts from ARNO expand their knowledge of coating technology
Only those who are aware of their capabilities can advise and support their customers well. This is why the application engineers from ARNO Werkzeuge spent a day at the coating center in Würselen to get to know the latest developments from CemeCon, including HiPIMS technology and the coating materials FerroCon®, InoxaCon® and AluCon®.
With one of the world's largest ranges of ground, highly positive cutting inserts for turning, innovative systems for grooving and parting as well as milling and drilling systems, ARNO Werkzeuge offers its customers an efficient range of tools for a wide variety of machining applications. Continuous improvement is an important building block for the success of the tools. ARNO Werkzeuge has been collaborating with CemeCon for many years now and has acquired its coating know-how via the coating service.
“As tool specialists, we are not unfamiliar with coatings, but we lack the in-depth expert knowledge. However, in order to train our own sales team and support and advise our customers as well as possible, for example in the event of a machining problem, we wanted to expand our knowledge of the latest coating technology and its potential. CemeCon offered us a very informative and helpful day for this,“ says Werner Meditz, Technical Manager at ARNO Werkzeuge.
The focus of the seminar was on the future-oriented HiPIMS technology: How does it work? What coating materials does CemeCon offer? And what are these particularly suitable for? The experts from CemeCon answered these and other questions in theoretical and practical sessions for interested application engineers.
“We are happy to offer our customers seminars on our coatings, either at our premises in Würselen or on site at the customer's premises. This strengthens our cooperation and creates a better understanding of our work. In addition, the tool experts familiarize themselves with the requirements that have to be considered for a premium coating. They can apply this knowledge directly to the manufacture of the tools. This makes work easier for everyone,” adds Inka Harrand, Product Manager for Cutting Inserts at CemeCon.
