Advanced Surface Characterisation Techniques: Tooling Industry
This webinar has already taken place. The recording is currently being prepared for publication and will be available for online viewing soon. You can request a link to the recording from this page soon.
This webinar focuses on one of the most important economic sectors for mechanical surface testing instruments: the tooling industry.
Tooling is the process of producing or acquiring the manufacturing components required for bulk production of parts. It includes production of molds and dies, forging, gauging, jigs & fixtures, and cutting tools for the manufacturing of different components such as automotive parts, turbines, propellers, plastic components, and many others.
Increasing of automotive fields expenditures, more-intense competition, launches of new products, retrofitting of old technology, increasing adoption of metal cutting tools will drive growth in Indian market.
In the tooling industry, there are 4 major types of customer pains:
- Adhesion of hard coatings: as a manufacturer of cutting tools, one need to verify the adhesion of the
coating on the substrate of the tool
- Hardness of hard coatings: as a coating equipment manufacturer, one needs to focus on improving
the coating process, one has to quantify the resistance to deformation of the tools
- Friction against other materials: as a manufacturer of molding tools, one want to characterize the
friction properties of new coatings against specific materials
- Thickness of hard coatings: as a job coating services supplier, one has to verify the coating thickness
for each batch produced
You will learn the details of our solutions for each of the above-mentioned customer pain in this webinar.
