CERATIZIT Dragonskin Multi-Layer Tool Coating at IMTS
For optimum protection against wear for long tool life, temperature resistance and process reliability, CERATIZIT USA Inc presented its Dragonskin multi-layer tool coating at IMTS. The high-performance coating is based on nanolayers, consisting of the appropriate combination of different coating systems and coating technologies, resulting in maximum protection against external influences and effectively reducing premature tool wear.
Because of they use nanometer-thin layers, CERTATIZIT combines different properties of different chemical compositions to achieve desired results. For example, the company’s CVD cutting material grade CTCM245, which was specially developed for machining high-alloy steels incorporates a very tough substrate, an Al2O3 layer, a compound layer and a TiCN layer to ensure the best performance. The combination provides temperature resistance to reduce thermal shocks, which allows for higher cutting speeds along with reduced flank and scour wear during the machining of high-alloy steels.
To quickly and efficiently move chips away from the tool as quickly as possible, the after-treatment of Dragonskin produces extremely smooth surfaces which have a positive effect on the contact friction between chip and rake face. This further reduces wear for even longer tool life and up to 80 percent increased overall performance.
