Research & Development
No matter whether they come in the form of semi-finished products, tools, components, consumables or replacement parts, the molybdenum and tungsten products from the Plansee Group are vital for our high-tech world, both now and in the future.

Their special structure makes molybdenum-lanthanum sheets from Plansee even stronger for furnace construction, where they provide ideal protection for the layers behind them. These sheets get their name from their appearance: Honeycomb sheets. They are installed as standard in Plansee’s Enerzone hot zones.
New shoulder milling cutter
Ceratizit has developed an entirely new carbide tool for shoulder milling. The new milling system allows precise 90-degree angles to be produced on components far more economically.
Up to 20 percent of the power available in a car is lost to friction. With a heatresistant coating made from molybdenum nitride and molybdenum-copper, Plansee is making it possible to optimize combustion in diesel injection systems by increasing the operating temperature and thus reducing fuel consumption.
Ceratizit Italy has introduced the finite element method for simulating forming processes. This method makes it possible to simulate the entire process as well as each individual step in the forming process for a workpiece. Simulation of the forming process allows Ceratizit to provide scientific evidence of the performance of its forming tools.
