Mechanical engineering, tools and automotive technology

The “Mechanical engineering, tools and automotive technology“ business unit is primarily concerned with developing coating systems for friction reduction and also for wear and corrosion protection and optimizing these for particular applications. This covers the entire process, from pretreatment, coating and process development –including analysis and simulation – to application. Pretreatment includes not only cleaning but in particular also adjusting surface topographies by abrasive blasting or plasma processes as well as a diffusion treatment, if necessary. Examples of applications in the components field are:

Another important activity is the design of coating processes by simulating real 3D components.

 

In the mechanical engineering and tools field these areas of application stand in the foreground:

  • Coatings for pressure die-casting molds
  • Tool coatings for plastic molding (pultrusion, injection molding)
  • Plasma diffusion treatment (including thermodynamical simulation) and coating of forging and press-hardening tools


In addition, sensorized surfaces are developed for and successfully used in the most varied safety-related areas of application, such as:

In addition to coating service providers our customers primarily include companies in the automotive sector, toolmakers, tool users and also coating users in all fields of mechanical engineering.
