Ionbond has developed a new series of premium PVD cutting tool coatings which make use of proprietary advanced arc technology. The new process deposits the coatings at energy levels far higher than conventional arc sources. The coatings significantly increase in density while reducing growth defects, resulting in a much smoother surface. Comparison tests with leading competitor coatings conducted by various customers and at Ionbond's internal cutting tool laboratory show substantially improved service lifetimes of the tools in all major types of machining operations. The coatings are marketed under the names Hardcut Plus TiSiN, Crosscut Plus AlCrN, and Maximizer Plus TiAlN.
Ionbond developed new generation of PVD and PACVD coatings marketed under the names Ionbond™ 90 Concept, Ionbond™ 35 CrWN and Ionbond™ 42 CrN + a-C:H. The coatings combine excellent wear resistance, high hardness and very low friction coefficient resulting in improved lifetime and productivity of the tool in various demanding applications like cold and hot stamping and forging, piercing and trimming or die casting of aluminum and injection molding.
