The demands on forming and molding tools (FMT) are ever increasing. They need to be able to withstand higher loads, stresses, and temperatures than ever before – and they need advanced coatings to be able to do so. As a leader in surface engineering, Ionbond recognized this trend and invested in state-of-the-art plasma nitriding equipment at Ionbond Madison Heights. Now, we can offer innovative duplex coatings produced in-house. This strategic move ensures that we can deliver premium-quality coatings with unmatched performance, meeting the high service standards of our customers.

Moving beyond conventional PVD coatings

In today's industrial landscape, maximizing productivity and ensuring excellent part quality are critical factors driving Ionbond's FMT customers. Challenging workpiece materials like advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) are becoming increasingly prevalent, and conventional heat-treated and PVD coated tools are no longer sufficient. To overcome the elevated stresses caused by thermo-mechanical cycling, duplex coatings have emerged as a very promising solution. Ionbond's duplex coatings combine plasma nitriding and PVD coating, for enhanced resistance to impact fatigue, crack formation, and wear. With these coatings, applications such as stamping DP980 and DP1180 dual-phase steel, hot forging steel, and aluminum high-pressure die casting can now be handled reliably.
