Project number 02PU2463 
Term 01.06.2006 - 31.05.2011



In the scope of this project a technology was developed to re-produce nano-scaled hard metal tools of high quality and with cost effectiveness. In combination with an also newly developed and adapted, extremely hard (>40GPa) coating it allows a leap in the performance of the cutting capacity, whereby involved enterprises may enter new markets.
