The cutting tool industry is a high-pressure sector. For specialist applications, the challenge is to produce tools that can handle novel materials for high-tech applications. And even in more traditional areas, smart tool makers are always looking to improve their productivity, tool longevity and sustainability – to keep their margins up, increase their market share and stay ahead of developments in machining processes.
The right coating can make a tremendous difference in the performance and lifetime of cutting tools. And the right technology partner can make a tremendous difference in the productivity of the coating process and the quality of the final products. As part of the Heat Treatment and Surface Engineering business unit of the IHI group, Hauzer and Bernex offer a complete solutions portfolio in surface engineering equipment, with coating systems for a variety of physical and chemical vapour deposition processes (PVD, PACVD, CVD, CVA, CVI).
