Ionbond Maximizer AlTiN

AlTiN coating for moderate cutting speeds

Maximizer AlTiN is engineered to cope with relatively high impact fatigue and shear stress. The average crystallite size and internal stress levels are controlled by a selected deposition process. Maximizer is tailored to withstanding cutting temperatures of up to 850 °C.

A distinguishing feature of Ionbond’s Maximizer is the composition modulation in combination with stress gradient. This facilitates optimum cutting performance.

Predictable performance for a broad range of work piece materials

Maximizer can be used on work piece materials ranging from mild steels to tool steels with up to 50 HRC. The cutting speeds range from 50 to 150 m/min, depending on cutting conditions and work piece material.

While providing improvements for a wide range of tools, Maximizer can be applied on HSS and carbide round shank cutting tools.
