Huge european manufacturer increases tool life by a factor of 7 to 8, when milling FR 4




Dear Sir or Madam ,

please find enclosed the latest news on mechanical processing of PCBs:



Licensing postponed


Germany: CemeCon postpones the licensing proceeding for the diamond coating of PCB tools. “Despite of a large number of proposals from major PCB tool manufacturers for receiving a license, " states Dr. Armin Kraus, Executive Director Marketing – CemeCon AG, "the prospects couldn’t convince us of their marketingplans. Hence we have decided to assign no further license at this moment.” Due to the vast increase of tool life of CCDia® coated tools and the possible implication for the sales volumes of the PCB-tool market, the new diamond coatings are regarded as critical by the tool industry . Dr. Armin Kraus: “Further on, we intend to expend the number of licensees to accommodate the worldwide demand of coated PCB tools. However, it is important for us, that our partners are committed wholeheartedly to our product and that they are disposed to bring the respective marketing effort – otherwise we can not justify the high-level development effort, which results from such a partnership." Hence as a first step - according to the plans of CemeCon - only one second license shall be granted. The upcoming development work for drilling and milling tools < 0,9 mm shall not be burdened by to many partners.



Milling a FR4/ hybrid stack of 3


A huge manufacturer of PCBs for the telecommunication industry attains a vastly longer tool life using a diamond coated milling cutter and thereby significant savings in the area of tooling and set-up costs.


Application data:


Milling cutter type: 1 100 2000 090 with a diameter of 2.0 mm, spiral geometry, tool manufacturer GCT (www.gctool.com)

Coating: CCDia Microspeed (CemeCon AG)

Parameter: PCB-multilayer thickness 1.6 mm approx., rev n = 28,000 r/min, advance f = 1.2 m/min.

Result: Tool life could be increased by a factor of 7 to 8 from 30 m to 240 m!





Through CCDia®Microspeed, CemeCon has developed a diamond coating which utilises the elementary properties of this material. Diamond is the hardest material of the world, is extremely smooth and exhibits an extremely low tendency of sticking with respect to hydrocarbons. These advantages have an immediate effect on the production process: The significantly extended tool life by a factor of at least six results in cost savings of approximately 40%. (more…)



Who is CemeCon?


Since 1986 the coating expert CemeCon, Würselen, Germany is considered as one of the first-rate vendors when it comes to high-quality coatings for high-performance tools and components. At Würselen, Germany CemeCon is operating the world-wide largest coating centre and is the world market leader in the area of wear protection coatings of diamond tools. With growth rates of over 50 % per year since the beginning of the Nineties, these are gaining prominence in industrial cutting operations, in particular in connection with compound materials, graphite and AlSi alloys. In these areas, these tools are very much superior to uncoated tools. (more…)
