12th SWISSMEM seminary of cutting tool specialists 2017
From 17th to 19th January the 12th SWISSMEM seminary of precision cutting tools took place at Pfäffikon SZ, Olten and Yverdon-les-Bains. A total of 330 Visitors took the opportunity to meet the event. With big pleasure the organization registered an increasing interest in the French speaking location.
All participants had to make a hard choice between the different presentations, because of the wide offer across actual themes. EXTRAMET chose the theme «Diamond coated Tools – full steam ahead to success» and showed the key factors for the Carbide substrate and the coating to succeed in tooling. The topic was very well selected: the hall was completely booked and even some special seats had to be brought in.
During the networking time between the presentations, our information booth was visited very well too. With a lot of interested visitors we had very specific and animated discussion. This interest showed us that diamond coating of tools is very important to the branch.
Our conclusion – there is a big interest on new ideas and technologies in the machining industry. The pressure for continuous improvements in the manufacturing process and with this also increasing competitiveness, will remain a constant companion for all of us.
