Uddeholm launches innovative alternative to coating for complex manufacturing demands

Uddeholm Vancron SuperClean is an innovative product with coating properties already integrated into the material. This delivers a reliability and predictability that are highly sought after by both tool-makers and tool-users.

  • Uddeholm Vancron SuperClean meets a distinct need on the market, in production environments where neither uncoated nor coated tools are suitable. The challenges can be tight tolerances, complex design, need for quick maintenance or delivery times, says Pär Emanuelsson, Vice President Marketing and Sales, Uddeholm.

Uddeholm Vancron SuperClean is the perfect match for production with high precision cutting and forming tools with sharp edges and tooling of complex geometries. The chemical composition constitutes an increased protection against adhesive and mixed wear and improves the whole tooling life cycle. The tools will maintain in great shape and condition longer and hence secure the quality of produced parts over time.

  • Our foundational business idea is to deliver a solution that creates value for our customers. By choosing Uddeholm Vancron SuperClean, the payback starts already during the manufacturing of the tool. With great material knowledge we can make a difference for our customers’ total tooling economy and this launch is the latest example, says Johnny Sjöström, CEO, Uddeholm.
