voestalpine eifeler Coatings has developed a series of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) for the cutting tools coating industry. The coating for cutting tool using the high and ultra-high speeds generate much heat which can weaken the tool and reduce tool life. Common failure modes that a coating can protect against are premature edge wear, thermal failure and edge build-up. This is mainly achieved through reduced friction, abrasion protection and reduction of edge buildup. With the introduction of CROSAL®-plus, eifeler created a PVD coating with greatly improved thermal stability for the most demanding applications. This provides significantly improved tool life over traditional coatings such as AlTiN, TiCN and TiN.
