Ionbond France has added additional coating capacity at its coating service center in Chassieu, France on the outskirts of Lyon. This latest generation coating machine will allow the site to continue developing its offer for coatings for cutting tools.
The coating machine is produced by Ionbond’s sister company, Hauzer Technocoating in the Netherlands, and allows for the deposition of denser, smoother coatings such as Crosscut™ Plus, a highly performing coating used heavily in gear cutting applications.
This and other high end coatings are the result of work carried out by the Cutting Tool Competence Center in Chassieu, where a group of specialists are in charge of the development and industrialization of coating solutions for the cutting tool industry throughout Ionbond’s international network of service centers.
In addition, the site has also been equipped with the latest in pre- and post-treatment technologies. Combined with the laboratory analysis equipment on site, the Cutting Tool Competence Center is well positioned as the center of excellence for cutting tools, especially concerning the machining of aerospace materials and gear cutting applications.
Ionbond France proposes a wide range of PVD and DLC coatings from its four coating service centers in France, serving the aerospace, medical, tooling, decorative and racing industries in France and abroad.
