Ceratizit’s Dragonskin coating technology enhances tool durability and heat resistance.
Dragonskin coating technology from Ceratizit USA Inc. combines high-performance substrates and coating structures to achieve a hard and durable satin finish. The company says the coating is designed to maximize tool life, cutting speeds and process reliability.
The cutting tool coating has a TiAIN nanolayer with a 0.35 coefficient of friction. This allows for maximum application temperatures of 1,832ºF, provide what the company says is an impenetrable layer of protection.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
