Hard coatings

PVD, DLC, PACVD, CVD…

Hard coatings have a very wide range of applications for:

  • standard cutting tools, bending, deep drawing and punching tools, glass fiber reinforced plastic processing tools…
  • various parts and components for the mechanical engineering, automotive, aerospace and power generation
  • medical instruments
  • decorative applications, such as coating of plastic and metal parts, especially in the electronic and automotive industries

Hard coatings have a high hardness and a very low coefficient of friction, which reduces the abrasive and adhesive wear of the tool and multiplies their service life.

With proper monitoring of the condition of the coating during operation, the tool can be withdrawn from service before damage to the tool itself, remove the used coating and re-coat the tool. This procedure can be repeated several times and thus achieve significant savings.

Our partner for hard coatings is Oerlikon Balzers Coating Austria.
