                                      • SPUTTER TARGETS FOR COATING

                                      • Sputter targets made from tungsten carbide for the coating of high-performance tools and components

                                        Why tungsten carbide?
                                        With ‘sputtering’, a physical, vacuum-based coating procedure, sputter targets are used. Sputter targets made from tungsten carbide are mostly used for the production of DLC coatings (‘diamond-like carbon’).

                                        Why CERATIZIT?
                                        Due to our own powder production and our comprehensive know-how in production processes, we guarantee a very pure microstructure without impurities or pores. Our sputter targets additionally distinguish themselves by means of a homogeneous microstructure – which in turn is decisive for a consistent coating result. Depending on requirements we offer a variety of carbide grades with various properties.

                                        Consistent and contamination-free pre-crushing and crushing to defined sizes is frequently a crucial prerequisite for material to be properly sorted through to recycling. Because of our wear-resistant and fracture-tough carbides, blades, inserts and other products for crushing materials remain sharp longer and without changing form. Additionally, the contamination of foreign materials is minimal, e.g. dust in the crushing process from the facility or crushing tools.

                                        - Diverse range of standard and customised products
                                        In order to be able to process the increasing quantities of waste for recycling, the shredding plants accordingly become larger and larger. Our product range offers a wide range of geometries. Of course, we also produce complex, customised forms.

                                        Our products for the sanitary industry are made from especially hard and tough carbide – and for a good reason: because pulp leads to heavy wear on the tool, it would otherwise have to be replaced and re-ground often. Due to the long service life of our cutting rolls, you are able to avoid frequent interruptions to the production process, in order to replace the rolls and, in turn, enormously reduce the unit costs.

                                        - Highly precise products
                                        Highly precise blanks are a prerequisite for the rotating cutting tools that are used daily to cut nappies, sanitary towels, and many other general hygiene articles – due to the considerable forces, errors in the µ field are enough to destroy the entire roll. The cutting edges of our blanks are extremely precise and near net shape, allowing you to continue working simply and quickly.

                                                  We have developed rods from submicron grades particularly for the wood processing industry which allow you to reach maximum cutting speeds. In addition, our chrome alloyed binder grades are highly resistant to corrosion and abrasive wear and therefore achieve a long tool life.

                                                  Maximum security
                                                  All rods are ground with a matt finish. This finish reduces the risk of tool slippage from the collet holder even at high rotational speeds.
