Oerlikon Balzers Coating Italy S.p.A. (OERLIKON BALZERS): Substrate, geometry, micro-geometry of the cutting tool edge, its pre-treatment techniques and finally the optimum coating are crucial factors influencing tool service life. In practice, abrasive and adhesive wear are the most occurring effects in this tribological system. The predominant wear mechanism that limiting tool life is abrasive wear due to material removal caused by hard and sharp-edged particles between the interacting surfaces that leads to scratches, grooves, micro-chips and dimensional changes. For difficult-to-machine materials such as Ti and Ni based alloys, stainless steel and hardened steel, also adhesive wear plays a decisive role. These materials start to stick more and more to the cutting edge and, due to the increasing shear forces, part of the coating and the cutting edge subsequently tear away due to the formation of cracks. Engineers at Oerlikon Balzers analyse these wear mechanisms in every detail. Do you also face these challenges when machining these difficult-to-cut materials? With BALINIT TISAFLEX, Oerlikon Balzers developed the optimum coating for applications using these materials: https://balzers.site/3grtGEV
