Press releases () Passion for surface solutions: Oerlikon Balzers at EMO 2015
Balzers, Liechtenstein 03. September 2015 – The technological leader for surface solutions based in Liechtenstein once again proves its unbounded passion for surface solutions at EMO in Milan. At booth F17 in Hall 10, several innovations will be presented simultaneously between 5 and 10 October. These include a new coating solution for high-speed gear cutting and a highly productive coating system.
Production costs and the question of how they can be reduced are of great importance for machining and cutting processes. Wear-protection coatings play a decisive role for increasing cutting speeds. At this year’s EMO, Oerlikon Balzers presents an innovative coating solution for gear cutting that demonstrates how this can be achieved. It persuades with coating properties that enable exceptionally high cutting speeds and even longer tool service lives, which together result in significantly improved productivity.
Oerlikon Balzers takes full advantage of every option for increasing customers’ efficiency. Their newest coating system innovation that will be presented to the public for the first time at EMO, is not only the most productive system of its size that the Liechtenstein-based company has ever developed, but it also stands out due to its extremely high throughput – even for simultaneous treatment of a high number of cutting and large-format forming tools.
A further key focus at EMO will be the BALIQ portfolio. This family of coatings is based on the S3p (Scalable Pulsed Power Plasma) technology, which combines the advantages of the sputtering and arc evaporation coating methods. The resulting coatings are characterized by extreme wear resistance and the very best in smoothness making them ideal for a wide range of new applications.
Additionally, METAPLAS.DOMINO, a system series from Metaplas, will be presented to customers at EMO for the first time under the Oerlikon Balzers brand.
Oerlikon Balzers’ next generation gear cutting coating solution persuades in various high end gear cutting applications.
