Manufacturing of diamond tools for wire saws

The Bekaert Company in Belgium has developed an innovative laser coating process to manufacture diamond tools for wire saws. An essential component to ensure process safety is the Fraunhofer IWS-developed temperature measurement system “E-MAqS” in combination with the process controller “LompocPro”. In 2015 IWS delivered the technology for two manufacturing systems to Bekaert.
