The advantages of HiPIMS technology

  • Flexibility
  • Coating thickness
  • Smoothness
  • Coating distribution
  • Adhesion
  • Toughness/ Hardness

For a long time it was technically inconceivable, but CemeCon has now perfected very thick PVD coatings with FerroCon®Quadro.

Coatings up to 12 µm can be realized with firm adhesion! Completely new options are opening up for machining steel and cast iron.
