Carbides at EuroBLECH: water-jet nozzles, solutions for tool and die construction and blanks for cold forming
Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT – worldwide network and high availability
CERATIZIT S. A., Mamer, Luxembourg (headquarters), 21 September 2016
With their competence brand Hard Metal Solutions by CERATIZIT, the CERATIZIT GROUP is showcasing wear-resistant carbide solutions for tool and die manufacturing, sheet metal cutting with water-jet nozzles as well as blanks for metal forming at EuroBLECH.
From 25 to 29 October in Hanover, the Luxembourg-based carbide manufacturer is, among others, presenting the corrosion-resistant CF carbide grades for long tool life in tool and die construction, as well as three innovative focusing tube product lines for water-jet cutting with the best price-performance ratio. The precision water-jet nozzles guarantee exact working results for customers. At Hall 27, Stand D103, visitors can learn more about near net shape manufactured blanks for cold forming, which makes further processing easy and time-saving.
Corrosion resistance for tool and die construction
The carbide experts from CERATIZIT specifically recommend customers grades for optimum tool life, consistent quality and greater economy in tool and die construction. The broad spectrum of corrosion-resistant CF grades is characterised by a homogenous structure and minimised porosity. With the ‘CF+’ carbide grades, CERATIZIT is offering an additional ‘plus’ in performance. Thanks to higher KIC values (critical tension intensity factor), this means that higher cutting edge stability is achieved while maintaining the same hardness, guaranteeing high process security. “Even with delicate active parts, our grades guarantee reliability and stable processes thanks to increased transverse rupture strength,” explains Product Manager Ralf Ottilie.
Economical water-jet cutting
Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT has a solution at the ready for sheet metal cutting: customers can choose the most suitable solution for their application from three innovative focusing tube product lines. “Our water-jet nozzles stand out with a top price-performance ratio, are suitable for all modern cutting head systems and support automatic centring during mounting,” says Christian André, Product Manager Water-jet Nozzles. Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT is able to manage and control every phase of carbide manufacturing from the carbide powder to the ready-to-use solution. “This means you can always count on top-class product quality, precision and performance at the highest level.” The focusing tubes ensure exact working results thanks to close hole tolerances, perfect grind and concentricity.
Blanks for precise and stable forming processes
In the field of metal forming, CERATIZIT offers carbide blanks for cold forming, among others. “Our individually adapted carbide grades withstand the highest pressure and exhibit very little wear. This ensures stable forming processes at the same parameters,” explains Christian Hummelt, Production Supervisor. Near net shape manufacturing makes economical machining of blanks possible for customers, while consistent processes in the production chain guarantee constant quality. “Without additional set-up costs, we produce small batch sizes in no time.” For high-cobalt carbides, Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT also has a centre of excellence in Hitzacker, Germany, where small and long, thin and delicate components are manufactured with high precision according to individual customer drawings.
High product availability, global service and continual research
Tools and dies as well as water-jet nozzles can be ordered quickly and flexibly via the online shop at e-techstore.com. Customers will also receive global technical advice directly on site. “Thanks to our broad knowledge of applications and continuous ongoing research, we are constantly developing highly innovative products together with scientific institutions and industry partners,” says Frank Thomé, Head of Business Unit. “Our experts in the competence brand Hard Material Solutions by CERATIZIT can rely on the technical support and metallurgical analysis of the entire CERATIZIT GROUP.”
