Download our new whitepaper: Ionbond™ 95 for hot forging

Read our new whitepaper on coating development for closed-die forging dies. Because of its suitability for large-scale production of products with a wide weight range, this manufacturing method dominates the industry. Hot forging, like all machining processes, is subject to cost and performance constraints. Increasing the service lifetime of the dies, for example, with our Ionbond™ 95 coating for forming and molding tools, is one of the most effective ways to reduce the total cost of hot forging.

Ionbond Whitepaper Ionbond 95

The most efficient approach: extending the die’s lifetime

Closed-die forging tools are a major investment. Ionbond's coatings extend the useful lifetime of dies, increase productivity, reduce maintenance and improve the quality of the resulting products. We are continuously developing new coatings to offset the complex thermal, mechanical and tribochemical loads that dies are exposed to, and the damage that results:

  • Adhesive wear
  • Abrasive wear
  • Mechanical fatigue
  • Thermal fatigue
  • Plastic flow

Read our case studies of Ionbond™ 95 coating

Read the three closed die hot forging case studies from Ionbond customers who achieved higher productivity and part quality with the Ionbond™ 95 coating. This coating outperforms a duplex CrN coating and a CVD TiC/TiN coating, even without prior plasma nitriding of the die. Also, in the whitepaper, we will go into all these topics and the development and performance of the multilayer Ionbond™ 95 coating in much more detail. Download it today to find out more.

Furthermore our experts are looking forward to having interesting discussions with you about Ionbond™ 95 and our other coating solutions.

Performance boost in aluminum forming: enabling cost-effective trimming of aluminum with Tetrabond™ (ta-C)

For companies in sheet metal forming, the generation of burrs and slivers is an ongoing challenge, especially when it comes to forming aluminum alloys. Burrs and slivers can reduce the final product quality and are costly to remove, which drives the search for solutions that prevent them from forming. Ionbond’s solution for this challenge is our Tetrabond tetrahedral amorphous carbon (ta-C) coating – a thin, extremely hard coating with a smooth surface and low sticking.
