Speed Meets Performance. A new circular arc technology has been developed for fast and reliable deposition of smooth tool coatings. Michiel Eerden, Product Manager at IHI Hauzer Techno Coating B.V.: “The technology is called CARC+ and has been tested by several toolmakers and job coaters with excellent results, outperforming other benchmark coatings.”
CARC+ is the abbreviation for Circular Arc Plus, an innovative technology with which tool makers are be able to distinguish their tools favourably from the ones of their competitors. The technology is available in the Hauzer Flexicoat® 850, new or as an upgrade afterwards. The new CARC+ technology proves to be very fast, smooth and reliable.
Due to the cathode design, the arc movement has been optimized for minimum emission of metal droplets, combined with extremely high target utilization. This further improves the cost of ownership of equipment with this technology. Fast, smooth and reliable are all important features, but performance is the diciding factor. Michiel: “Several well-known toolmakers and job coaters tested our CARC+ technology and the resulting coatings and found that flank wear was significantly less, especially after a longer cutting length.”
