Coating by Oerlikon Balzers
Coating is WorthwhileRecoating of resharpened cutting tools ensures high productivity of the coated tools. Only recoated tools make is possible to achieve similar tool lives with identical cutting parameters.
Productivity gainsCoated cutting tools can be used with substantially higher cutting parameters than uncoated ones. This reduces machining times and thus cutting costs. Longer tool life means fewer tool replacements which therefore reduces setup costs.
Difficult to cut materialsTitanium and nickel alloys as well as high-alloy steels are notoriously difficult to cut. Coating with a low coefficient of friction and a low tendancy of adhesion to the substrates make it easier to machine such substrates.
Hard machiningHard and wear-resistant coating makes it possible to machine tempered substrates of up to 70 HRC. Tools with defined cutting edges allow for the finishing of hard work-pieces, thus eliminating the need for grinding.
HSC and dry machiningHigh speed cutting and dry machining generates considerable heat. Thanks to the thermal stability, hot hardness and the oxidation resistance of the coating, the heat is dissipated via the chip.
