Razor sharp edges and long cutting tool lifetime
The right coating can dramatically increase cutting tool lifetime and performance – an excellent way to stand out as tool manufacturer or coating service provider
The thin, hard coatings deposited by physical vapour deposition (PVD) extend lifespan and performance of cutting tools many times over. With a Hauzer machine, you can offer the right coating for the job, regardless of the tool. Hauzer technology offers a strong range of general machining coatings such as TiAlN and AlCrN, produced with CARC+ Flex technology. We also excel at multilayer and hybrid coatings that create extra options for niche markets, such as machining non-ferrous metals or Ti- and Ni-alloys.
Tool manufacturers can stand out by offering tools that help their customers increase productivity. The right coating can boost cutting speed, decrease cutting forces and increase longevity
With sustainability high on the agenda for manufacturers and lawmakers, more cutting tools are needed for lightweight materials such as aluminium, titanium, and fibre-reinforced plastics
Use of stainless steels (fuel cell), hardened steels (general engineering) and nickel alloys (aerospace) is growing apace. Cutting tools for these applications require low-adhesive coatings such as ta-C
Increasingly, manufacturers are looking to reduce coolant use, again for environmental reasons. Cutting tools for these applications need a highly heat-resistant coating
Even though tools are accepted to wear out, consistent high quality can set a tool manufacturer apart from the competition. The right coating has a large stake in determining the final performance
Taking advantage of improvements in digital processes can make a business much more efficient.
In an age where the majority of people carry smart electronics with them all the time, there is increasing demand for the miniaturised tools needed to manufacture these types of products.
Even in a performance-focused market such as the cutting tools market, there is room for non-performance-related characteristics to distinguish yourself. A variety of tool coating colours is a big trend these days.
Whether you are a precision cutting tool manufacturer or a coating service provider, Hauzer technology can create a machine which delivers coatings to meet your business needs.
Precision tool manufacturers
As a precision cutting tool manufacturer, you need access to a wide range of coatings to meet the performance requirements for milling, turning, drilling, tapping, hobbing, skiving and sawing. The right coating can make the difference between a good tool and a great one.
Hauzer can support you by setting up your machines for a broad coating portfolio that can be expanded with new recipes. Implement promising new technologies – which Hauzer is constantly researching – at an early stage to get ahead of the competition.
Tool coating providers
As a coating service provider, you need a portfolio of coatings for general machining conditions. This will allow you to combine batches of tools and offer your customers quicker turnaround times and a lower price point.
Coating application examples
How do Hauzer machines stand out in the cutting tool coating market?
In addition, if you are looking for a dedicated coating, our process engineers will partner with you to develop it. Al2O3 deposited by dual magnetron sputtering and T-mode is an example of a coating and technology resulting from a joint development project.
