Hardcut™

Recubrimiento TiSiN para condiciones extremas de corte

Hardcut™ TiSiN está diseñado para el mecanizado de alta velocidad de materiales duros en condiciones de lubricación mínima o nula. El revestimiento está diseñado para permitir una temperatura borde de corte de hasta 1100 °C.
Una característica distintiva de Hardcut™ de Ionbond es su composición: un revestimiento multi-capa con una capa exterior de nano-compuesto con Si3N4 nano-cristales en una matriz de TiN cristalino. Esta matriz está diseñada para proteger el borde de corte de la transferencia de calor, la oxidación y la abrasión.

Mecanizado de alta velocidad de materiales duros pieza de trabajo

Hardcut™ puede ser usado en materiales de pieza de trabajo que incluyen aceros de hasta 60 HRC, aleaciones de alto contenido de níquel y titanio. Hardcut™ es especialmente adecuado para fresas de carburo y herramientas de corte de engranajes de semi-acabado y de operaciones de acabado que implican altas temperaturas en el chip/interfaz de borde de corte. Las velocidades de corte varían generalmente de 100 a 300 m/min, dependiendo de las condiciones de corte y el material de la pieza de trabajo.

Crosscut Microsection

Crosscut™

AlCrN coating for milling and gear cutting

Crosscut™ AlCrN, the latest addition to Ionbond’s range of coatings for cutting tools, features a unique nanostructure for a substantial decrease of internal stress. Crosscut™ is tailored to withstanding cutting temperatures of up to 1050°C. It enables consistent performance in very challenging cutting conditions.

A distinguishing feature of Ionbond’s Crosscut™ is the improved wear performance at the cutting edge of the tool. Uniform distribution of mechanical forces in the vicinity of the cutting edge provides an additional advantage. This property puts Crosscut™ ahead of other coatings, making it excel in applications where similar AlCrN coatings provide only modest lifetime improvements. Crosscut™ boosts the tool performance in dry and lubricated cutting conditions significantly.

Superior performance and productivity gains

Reliable operation of Crosscut™ leads to increased productivity of cutting tools in a wide range of materials, speeds and feeds. Since the coating resists chipping and roughening, the surface quality of the machined part remains exceptionally high throughout the life of the tool. While providing improvements for a wide range of tools, Crosscut™ shines in particular for interrupted cutting applications, such as milling and hobbing.

Crosscut™ Plus

Advanced Arc Technology

Ionbond has developed a new series of premium cutting tool coatings using an advanced arc technology. The new process deposits the coatings at far higher energy levels than possible with conventional arc sources. The coatings have a significantly increased density, which leads to improved abrasion resistance and reduced tendency for chipping at the edge of the cutting tool. The coating has fewer growth defects resulting in a smoother surface, which can be further improved with the appropriate post treatment. The cutting performance is enhanced due to the highly controlled compositions and internal stress gradients. The coatings are suitable for HSS and tungsten carbide tools and show the increased performance in dry and wet machining.

Crosscut™ Plus

The AlCrN based Crosscut™ Plus is the most versatile coating for wet and dry machining at medium to high speeds in milling, drilling and gear hobbing operations with temperatures reaching up to 1050°C. Its all-rounder qualities makes it suitable for the widest range of materials from low to high tensile steels, cast irons, tool steels, stainless steels, titanium and nickel alloys.

Maximizer

TiAIN coating for moderate cutting

Maximizer TiAIN 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 with-standing 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.
