Very Reliable Equipment
Dr. Ke agrees that the AlTiN based coatings are very popular. “There are varieties, such as AlTiSiN, that perform very well,” he says. “In order to manufacture such coatings, the machine needs to have the right technology for high performance coatings, needs to be reliable and achieve a short coating time. Every Chinese tool maker is striving to achieve the same high performance coating that makes their competitors from Europe successful. Carbide drills, end mills, reamers and inserts are often being coated in China, as well as hob cutters. In this respect the market is not so different from Europe and America, it is very much driven by the automotive market. Our choice for Hauzer equipment has been made because the company has developed some high performance coatings in recent years. Those coatings fully meet our drill requirements. The other reason for buying Hauzer equipment is their very high reliability. We are very satisfied to have Hauzer as our partner to be successful in the mature Chinese tool coating market.”
