IMPROVING YOUR MACHINING PERFORMANCE

The tool coating market is large and varied. Hauzer is a preferred supplier to many large cutting and forming tool makers as well as many job coaters worldwide. The CARC+ technology has become a standard in the market, surpassing other technologies on overall performance of the tools. A high target efficiency combined with fast deposition technologies make our machines very cost effective. The robust machines in different sizes are flexible and need little maintenance.  In combination with highly efficient and fast deposition technologies, this make our systems very cost effective.

TOOL COATINGS

Tool coatings have been used since the early 1980s to improve the performance and lifetime of tools. Since that time, the technologies, coatings and applications have developed immensely. This has resulted in efficient cutting of more and more demanding materials, an increased productivity, less use of environmentally unfriendly cooling media and higher quality end products. As one of the pioneers in PVD technology, Hauzer has always been and still is a strong partner in this development. Our technology portfolio is the broadest in the industry, allowing us to cooperate with our customers and find the best industrial plasma solutions for their application.

APPLICATIONS

Tool coatings are used in two main segments: cutting and forming tools. Precision cutting tool manufacturers are using a wide range of coatings for all tooling applications, such as like milling, drilling, tapping and hobbing of different materials with different cutting conditions.

Hauzer supports job coating companies with a range of coatings that fit with all general machining conditions. In our competence centres our process engineers develop dedicated coatings together with our customers using the flexible, modular system configurations with multiple technologies. The technologies include CARC+ Flex, (Dual) Magnetron Sputtering, HIPIMS and PACVD. Al2O3 is an example of a coating and technology which has been realized in a joint development project.

Coatings are also used on forming tools such as moulds, dies, punches etc. In these applications, properties like anti-sticking and corrosion protection can be equally important as hardness and wear resistance. With the growing importance of ultra-high strength steels, the load on forming tools is higher than ever. Hauzer’s solution for these applications is Nitrocoat: plasma nitriding and PVD coating in the same system in one batch.
