Improved productivity and performance in forming tools
Offer increased forming tool lifetime with hard, smooth, anti-sticking and corrosion resistant coatings deposited with a specifically configured Hauzer machine
As coating service provider, you play a vital role in the life cycle of forming tools, which are cleaned, coated, polished, decoated and coated again many times over. With a Hauzer coating machine, you have access to the hard, smooth, anti-sticking and corrosion-resistant coatings that allow you to distinguish yourself in the market. The flexible, modular build can be configured to provide the coatings you need for today’s development goals, and upgraded to help you meet tomorrow’s.
Today’s production technologies often call for larger tools
With sustainability high on the agenda for manufacturers and policy makers, forming tools need to stand up to use on lightweight substrates such as aluminium, titanium, and Inconel, which causes additional wear on the tools
Bringing down the cost per coating is important to stay competitive in a global market, which is why companies are always looking for efficiencies in labour, material use or tact time
Companies are looking to distinguish themselves in the market to build up a loyal customer base, who come back to them for their reliable results
Coatings are an important factor in producing high-quality forming tools and maintaining them during their lifespan.
Moulds, dies, punches, and other forming tools may require coatings with anti-sticking properties and corrosion protection, in addition to more traditional characteristics like hardness and wear resistance.
With the growing importance of ultra-high strength steels, the load on forming tools is higher than ever. For these applications, Hauzer offers the unique Nitrocoat solution: plasma nitriding and PVD coating in a single system, in the same batch, for much faster turnaround. The Nitrocoat process hardens the substrate surface and improves the adherence of the PVD coating. No polishing is needed between nitriding and coating, increasing the time efficiency even more.
The tool coating market is large and varied. Hauzer is a preferred supplier to many large forming tool makers as well as many job coaters worldwide. Why? With our combination of technologies, we can combine many important coatings and treatment steps in one machine, for instance coating, plasma nitriding and improved chemical cleaning. This makes Hauzer machines a critical part of a highly productive company.
