Balzers, Liechtenstein in May 2011 - Oerlikon Balzers, the leading global supplier of coatings for tools and precision components, is showing trends in the further development of coating technology at the 2011 ECTA.
The performance of coatings has improved continuously since the mid '80s. That, in turn, has lead to massive cost savings in production and has made dry machining of hardened tool steel possible, for example. The metal-working industry can continue to count on this trend and will be able to realise significantly higher production performance in future as well.
Oerlikon Balzers sees itself as a partner in technology and utilises the transfer of knowledge at international conferences such as the ECTA in Valencia or the ICMCTF in San Diego in order to align its coatings and coating systems with the most up-to-date scientific findings as well as according to market needs.
Balzers' innovative coating systems and coatings provide clear advantages: higher performance capacity, shorter delivery times and production cost reduction.
Close cooperation with Balzers creates competitive advantages for all partners.
With a global network of 86 coating centres, Oerlikon Balzers is able to offers its BALINIT® ALCRONA PRO and BALINIT® ALNOVA coatings worldwide with consistently high quality. This means that end users of tools worldwide can profit from increased productivity and high process reliability.
