Evaluation of cutting performance on Pramet carbide inserts with several coatings, made by Platit AG

One of the most prosperous fields of the tool innovation – beside the development of tool construction and the expansion of the circle of the usable tool materials – is the field of evolution of materials and methods of the coatings where an explosion-like development can be noticed. The development of various capacity of coating units makes it possible for us to choose from coating types, we never had before. Beside the universal applicable coatings types there are special coating systems (PM HSS hob, drilling of Ni-base alloys etc.) as well, developed for a given task, increasing the cutting performance of the tools significantly.
