GearCut – Aluminium Chromium Nitride

Innovative coating for extreme-performance tools

This coating is made with a new PVD technology combining the most modern concepts and the most sophisticated developments of cathodic arc coating.

A special high-energy etching step - implemented by a chemical reaction activated by plasma - makes surfaces particularly reactive to further coating.

The coating is an Aluminium and Chromium Nitrides alloy created with a special evaporation technology which allows the formation of layers that are practically free from structural defects.


When to use the GearCut coating



GEAR TOOLS

GearCut is designed to be applied on hobs working in heavy-duty conditions, that is with extreme cutting parameters or for dry-cutting, but it also shows excellent results when applied on other types of gear cutting tools, such as shaper cutters and stick blades for bevel gear cutting.

CHIP REMOVAL TOOLS

Suitable for ultra high performance mechanical machining tools, as well as for application on all the main chip removal tool types for the machining of ferrous materials. A thinner version which is optimized for specific applications is also available.
