This year‘s highlight of the industry is now behind us, EMO (Exposition Mondiale de la Machine Outil)- the international leading exhibition of metal processing. From October 5–10 Milan was the hub of the world of tool manufacturing and attracted the attention of exhibitiors and professional visitors.
PVT could not be absent in this circle and presented its current innovations. Noticeable from a distance: the new corporate identity, new logo, new corporate color concept, new system design and a new exhibition booth outfit caught the interest of the professional clientele.
The technical advances were presented to clients and interested visitors in discussions and negotiations by Dr.-Ing. Herbert M. Gabriel (President of PVT). The focus was on developments to optimize arc-evaporation processes and the resulting advantages for users of PVT’s systems:
application of the new technologies PDA* and HiParc**
reduction of deposition time by more than 50%
increase of productivity of coating systems by 85% (e.g. decrease of cycle time for the deposition of 3 µm AlTiN from 6.5 hours to 3.5 hours)
increase of target utilisation to up to 70%
The team came with high expectations to Italy—and it was worth it!
A large number of potential customers from countries around the globe requested highly qualified responses. Concrete projects were discussed in various talks and are now being finalized in the exhibition follow-up.
Public traffic did by far not reach the early expectations of the exhibition organizers (something that was confirmed by fellow exhibitors). However, the high quality of the discussions is motivation for us to look forward to EMO 2017, from September 18th to 23rd in Hanover.
For those who can’t wait until then—you will experience PVT live on various events worldwide. Our exhibition calendar gives information about where and when on our website.
We are looking forward to seeing you …
* HiParc = High Power Pulsed Arc
** PDA = Plasma Diffused Arc
