Aurora X Plus Composition CT

AuroraX Plus

AuroraX Plus is the new addition to Ionbond’s Premium Plus coatings with advanced arc technology. AuroraX Plus has been developed primarily for machining difficult-to-machine materials such as titanium alloys, nickel-based alloys, hard materials and stainless steel. When machining these demanding materials, the cutting tool is subjected to extensive wear under severe operating conditions ranging from high temperatures to heavy mechanical loads.

Ionbond has engineered the AuroraX Plus coating with a tailored TiAlSiXN composition and nanocomposite multilayer microstructure that combines the optimum properties required to withstand extreme cutting conditions. Due to its high hot hardness, high thermal stability, outstanding oxidation resistance and low thermal conductivity, AuroraX plus improves tool life by providing exceptional wear resistance and acting as a thermal barrier to protect the tool material. In addition, the smooth and low friction properties of AuroraX Plus ensure efficient chip evacuation. Moreover, the high chemical inertness of AuroraX Plus suppresses build-up when machining sticky materials such as titanium alloys and stainless steel.

AuroraX Plus also improves cutting edge toughness, which is critical in interrupted cutting applications. It is stable at high temperatures up to 1100°C, making it suitable for dry machining. The newly developed Ionbond coating is ideal for dry and wet machining with a broad range of cutting conditions for various applications including drilling,milling, hobbing and bevel cutting.

Ionbond™ 42 Cutting Tools

DLC Coating for machining Al alloys and gummy materials

Ionbond™ 42 is a Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating that is suited for machining aluminium alloys and other sticky materials such as plastics where moderate (<350°C) cutting edge temperatures are generated. This thin coating is designed to maintain maximum cutting edge sharp-ness while facilitating extreme smoothness of the coating chip evacuation, moving heat away from the cutting edge.

Variety of standard cutting applications

Ionbond™ 42 shows excellent performance in drilling and reaming aluminium of alloys, especially for aerospace applications. The low coefficient of friction combined with sharp cutting edges eliminates sticking and built up edge, providing a clean surface finish. The lower deposition temperature allows for deposition on carbide, HSS and brazed tools.

Ionbond CVD 08

Ionbond™ CVD 08

Ionbond™ CVD 08 TiBN is a special multi-layer coating applied on tools  used in high-volume machining. Applied by means of the CVD coating procedure, it exhibits a particular hardness and wear resistance due to Bor in TiBN.
In addition, Ionbond™ CVD 08 TiBN features a particularly low coefficient of friction, which facilitates chip flowl when machining stainless steels.

The combination of κ-Al2O3 and TiBN delivers an extremely high hot-hardness and a very low thermal conductivity, which significantly increases the tool’s lifetime. TiN, as a top layer, protects the hard TiBN coating from breakage during the cutting start-up phase.

Ionbond™ CVD 08 TiBN is applied at ca. 1000°C and is suited for cemented carbide cutting inserts exclusively.

Ionbond™ CVD 10 Cutting Tools

Ionbond™ CVD 10 TiN-TiCN-TiN

Ionbond™ CVD 10 is a classic CVD coating for high-volume milling  of steels at moderate cutting speeds. Due to TiCN, the coating composition exhibits an exceptionally  good  wear-resistance. In addition, the very  hard coating is, thanks to its TiN finish, very well suited for machining of aluminum.

TiN as a base layer provides exceptional adhesion between the substrate and TiCN as the functional layer and serves as wear indicator. As a top layer, TiN optimizes friction-caused wear and the running-in behavior of the tool, due to its low coefficient of friction.

Ionbond™ CVD 10 is applied at ca. 1000°C and is suited for cemented carbidecutting inserts exclusively.

Ionbond™ CVD 13 Cutting Tools

Ionbond™ CVD 13 TiCN-TiC-TiN

Ionbond™ CVD 13 is a multipurpose CVD coating for high-volume  machining  of metals, especially steels. Its primary feature is the ideal combination of wear resistance and toughness.

The combination of TiC and TiCN results in an exceptional rupture strength of the cutting edges at low to medium cutting speeds. TiN as a surface layer optimizes friction-caused wear and the running-in behavior of the tool, due to its low coefficient of friction.

Ionbond™ CVD 13 is applied by means of CVD at ca. 1000 °C and is suited for cemented carbide cutting inserts as well as for high-alloyed, secondary hardened tool steels.

Ionbond™ CVD 29 Cutting Tools

Ionbond™ CVD 29

Ionbond™ CVD 29 is exceptionally well-suited for high-volume machining of cast iron and cast steel at medium to high cutting speeds and high temperatures due to the thermo-dynamically stable structure of its ceramic content.

The αAl2O3 layer, as a functional layer, not only exhibits an exceptional hot-hardness, it also features a very low thermal conductivity, which significantly increases tool lifetime. TiN, as a surface layer, protects the  hard ceramic αAl2O3 layer from wear damage during the cutting start-up phase.

Ionbond™ CVD 29 is applied at ca. 1000°C by means of CVD and is suited for cemented carbide cutting inserts.
