Balzers, Inc., Elgin, IL, is opening a new coating center in Bakersfield, CA. To start production in early May, the plant will produce thin-film wear-resistant coatings for cutting, forming and loading tools and components. The opening allows Balzers to improve lead times and keep costs under control for West Coast customers, according to company officials. The new Bakersfield plant is equipped with Balzers’ latest coating system, the BAI 1200, designed for high-volume coating and capable of accepting large tools or forms in lengths to 39 in. and diameters to 27.5 in.
