The Surface Engineers

Cutting tool coatings

Ionbond offers a broad portfolio of state of the art PVD, PACVD and CVD cutting tool coatings for HSS and cemented carbide tools to suit every machining requirement and work piece material.

Ionbond coatings save overall machining cost as they allow higher cutting speeds and feeds and reduce the time needed for tool change due to the extended tool life. The low friction properties and the hardness of the coatings allow the reduction of lubrication and cooling, establish predictable wear and ensure a better surface quality of the machined part.

Cutting tool coating service is available from 40 Ionbond centers in strategic locations across Europe, Asia and North America. The service is provided to OEMs, re-grinders and end users.

High-performance coatings

The high-performance coatings Hardcut and Crosscut™ are specifically designed for tools used in high-speed, high-feed machining of tough and abrasive work piece materials where high thermal and mechanical loads are present and minimal or low lubrication and cooling is provided.

Value coatings

Ionbond’s Maximizer and Ionbond™ multi and special purpose coatings on HSS and cemented carbide tools are the workhorses for cutting of metals, plastics, composites and other materials including wood. They offer high productivity, extended tool lifetime, and reduce overall cost.

Bernex™ CVD coatings

Ionbond has a long tradition as the market leader in providing Bernex™ CVD coating services and equipment. Bernex™ equipment accounts for about 60 % of all globally used CVD installations for coating. The thick, low stress Bernex™ CVD coatings are applied on cemented carbide inserts for extreme load machining of steel and cast iron.
