Dry milling of HRC die
An OEM customer is looking for the right coating to enhance dry milling of SKD11 tool steel (HRC 60-62) with a square end mill (Ø8 mm). The milling process uses a 4000 rpm tool rotation speed, cutting speed of 100 m per minute, a radial depth of 0.25 mm and an axial depth of 8 mm.
- Plastic deformation due to high temperatures
- Abrasive wear
- Chipping of the cutting edge
- High hardness
- High temperature resistance
Our coating recommendation
Hardcut™ Plus, a TiSiN based multi-layer coating, has been developed for high speed end-milling and gear hobbing of the hardest and toughest materials including exotic nickel and titanium alloys unde…
