Cutting Tool

Cutting Tool

  • High Speed Steel tools life increased 3 to 30 times
  • Carbide tools life increased 2 to 5 times
  • Deposition temperatures as low as 480-840°F (250-450°C) protect carbide's binder from deterioration, by comparison with the CVD process applied at more than 1,850°F (1,000°C)
  • Isolates the tool from the part, avoids edge buildup and tool cratering
  • Reduced friction against workpiece and chips, reduced spindle torque, less vibrations, better finish
  • Speed and Feed increased 10 to 50%
  • Reduces or eliminates cooling (with specific coatings)
  • Repeatable, stable performance of the coatings between batches
  • When required, our stripping procedures remove completely old coatings without attacking base steel
  • Regrinding and recoating saves 25 to 75% on tooling costs
  • 5-10 days batch turnaround
