Beyond Surfaces #9 - Opportunity

The year 2020 has brought a great deal of change. In this edition of BEYOND SURFACES we include a “special”, giving you a unique insight into how our employees around the world have taken on the challenge of the initial months of the Covid-19 pandemic with commitment and creativity. We are also taking the magazine title quite literally and are looking “beyond surfaces” into the second pillar of the Oerlikon Group, our synthetic-fiber business.

With this edition, we are celebrating a small but important anniversary: The first issue of BEYOND SURFACES was published five years ago. Two years earlier, Metco had joined the Oerlikon Group, and this magazine was created to introduce our customers to the solutions offered by the two brands, Oerlikon Balzers and Oerlikon Metco.

Since then, the Oerlikon Group has undergone significant changes. Today, it is a “Powerhouse of Materials and Surface Solutions.” Our newest business unit, Additive Manufacturing, which focuses on the industrialization of additive manufacturing methods, represents an important augmentation of the Oerlikon Balzers and Oerlikon Metco portfolio.

아주 작은 결함 조차도 허용되지 않는

Marc Herve는 스피드가 중요한 스페셜 분야를 개발합니다…

개인 시간에 그는 무난한 패밀리카를 주로 이용합니다. 반면 고객과 함께 할 때 그의 모든 대화는 Formula 1 경주용 자동차, Moto GP 바이크 혹은 Formula E 경주용 자동차에 포커싱되며, 무엇보다도 ‘경쟁사보다 0.1초라도 더 빠르게 하기 위해서 어떤 코팅을 해야 할까?’에 집중합니다. Marc Hervé 는 모터 스포츠 분야에서 가장 중요한 비밀을 알고 있습니다.

Spot on: 재료

플라즈마 : 표면 솔루션의 혁신을 가능하게 하는 것

지금까지 Spot on materials 시리즈에서 주로 다루어진 것들은 니켈이나 티타늄과 같이 ‘고체의, 실제로 만질 수 있는’ 소재들이 대부분이었습니다. 이번 호에서는 현대 표면 솔루션에서 빼놓을 수 없는 것(고대 그리스어: 플라즈마)에 대해 살펴보겠습니다.

Machining with carbon power

The future is lead-free — at least as far as brass and copper materials are concerned. This is leading to completely different material properties and behavior during machining. The automotive industry, among others, is noticing the effects. In their search for new solutions, manufacturers are being supported by innovative companies such as Werkö, a German manufacturer of precision cutting tools, and Oerlikon Balzers.

Spot on: 애플리케이션

‘마찰’이 갖는 상당한 잠재력

학창 시절 물리학 수업에서 처음 배웠던 것들 중 하나는 접촉된 상태에 있는 두 물체 사이에 움직임이 있을 때 마찰이 발생한다는 것입니다. 과학자들은 어떻게 하면 이러한 효과를 활용할 수 있을지 혹은 최소화 할 수 있을지에 대해 연구합니다. 그리고 코팅은 여기에서 결정적인 역할을 합니다.

The wheel reinvented

How BALINIT CROMA PLUS literally keeps the business going …

Without the wheels, rollers and casters made by Blickle, much more than Europe’s postal logistics centers would be at a standstill. There are many other sectors in which the company, ranked third in the world market, keeps business running — including in Blickle’s own injection molding production. And there, the adoption of BALINIT CROMA PLUS has reduced the levels of both maintenance and waste.

Quantity with 100% quality

Ensuring smooth and efficient processes inside the engine

Nozzle needles in diesel engine common rail systems are only a few millimeters in size, but they play a major role in ensuring smooth and efficient engine processes. Vitesco Technologies, the drive division of Continental, has these needles coated with BALINIT DLC. But how do you ensure that the coating quality of these small components is just right when there are several million of them?
