Hardcut Plus

Hardcut Plus

Hardcut Plus, a TiSiN based multi-layer coating, was developed for high speed end-milling and gear hobbing of the hardest and toughest materials, including exotic nickel and titanium alloys, under low lubrication and dry conditions. It performs best on tungsten carbide tools where it withstands temperatures of up to 1100 °C at the cutting edge.
