Arkansas’ First Nanomanufacturing Plant Set to Open

Arkansas’ first nanomanufacturing facility is set to open in Springdale.

Duralor LLC, a Springdale-based producer of high-performance coatings and coating processes for cutting tools and machine-wear parts, announced Tuesday that it will open a production and R&D site May 29. The facility, located in the Springdale Technology Park, will also house NanoMech’s headquarters and joint research operations. A subsidiary of NanoMech, Duralor competes in the $20 billion global cutting tool market.

Duralor manufactures cubic boron nitride (cBN) coatings for cutting-tool applications currently in use with a global automotive manufacturer and in the heavy-machinery industry under the product name TuffTek®. Diamonds are the only cutting surface harder than cBN, but are unsuitable for hardened steel machining.
