Last Wednesday, October 24, took place the First Technical Session on HIPIMS coatings and its applications in the industry. The place where it took place was the Institut Químic de Sarrià (IQS) of Barcelona.
In the event, organized by Flubetech, presented the main characteristics and properties of the coatings obtained by HIPIMS technology (High Power Impulse Magnetron Sputtering) as well as the industrial applications that are taking place nowadays and their future expectations.
The invited entities, which were Tecnalia, CSIC-US, IK4-Tekniker, nano4energy and Cemecon, presented their studies and advances on HIPIMS technology as well as the most important news in the industry.
Flubetech, which has been using this technology for more than a year, is offering HPN1 and Hardlox coatings. Both are giving exceptional performance, especially in applications of cutting tools and aluminum injection molds.
After the successful attendance with more than 50 assistants of the academic field and industrial companies interested in technology, work is being done to organize more similar events in other areas of the state of great industrial activity in the sector, such as Euskadi.
