“We are committed to providing metalworkers with the best in cutting tools now and in the future, enabling them to achieve outstanding quality in their products.  By incorporating premium coating expertise from CemeCon in the form of our new CC800® HiPIMS in-house coating line, we now have the complete manufacturing chain and thus the final mold under control,” says Markus Hallas, Managing Director of NACHREINER GmbH.

Only the best for the best

With the CC800® HiPIMS, CemeCon has once again significantly increased the quality and performance of coatings compared to other processes. The technology is flexible and suitable for coating many different tool variants. Whether small batches or large lot sizes: It can be optimally adapted to different requirements, for example, from micro tools to tools for heavy machining – and this within a very short time. 

For premium quality across this entire range, HiPIMS coatings have outstanding properties: they are smooth, adhesive, hard and tough at the same time, have a fine-grained, dense morphology, low residual stresses and high thermal stability. The uniform coating thickness distribution also contributes to optimum wear protection of the cutting tools.

Markus Hallas: “The decision to use our own coating technology was a very special step. With it, we have set the course for the future. Therefore, it was important for us to have a partner at our side who not only provides us with the best technology, but also accompanies us from the first step, trains and educates our employees and supports us in the development of our own coatings.”

With CemeCon COATING EXPERTISE, we excellently fulfill our promise ‘PRECISION means leaving 
nothing to chance’ with FIRST-CLASS QUALITY. The CC800® HiPIMS provides our premium tools with a further quality leap and is the key to being able TO DIFFERENTIATE and set ourselves apart from the competition even better with HIGH-QUALITY COATING SOLUTIONS.
