PVD Coatings

Mtec is one of the METAPLAS-Machining series of coatings. It stands out for its improved performance characteristics for high-performance cutting. Mtec’s optimized and extremely closed morphology makes it particularly suitable for machining of otherwise poorly machinable materials. The structure of the coating layer can be adjusted, with the same target composition, within a broad parameter field ranging from fine columnar to nanocrystalline. Mtec exhibits high hardness, high thermal stability and high resistance to oxidation. It is suitable for use in chip-removing machining of heat treated steels, austenitic steels, and a diverse range of high-temperature alloys, titanium and nickel-based alloys.
