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.
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.
“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.
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.
The market situation in tool and die making is more dynamic than ever. Changing markets, ever smaller batch sizes, individual products, continuously increasing quality requirements and shorter development times – the challenges for tool and die makers are manifold.
The Electronics industry, Micromachining, Aerospace, Tool and mould making and Medical technology – the key to High-precision machining of the Micro components and finest contours are tools that are only a few millimetres or even tenths of a millimetre thin.
