High speed machining of abrasive materials with extreme tool life

Advantages

Close to Diamond Hardness

DLC coating is 3-4 times harder than conventional CVD & PCD coatings

Wear Resistance

Special substrate and diamond-like coating ensures reliable machining

Number 1 for Copper

Designed for copper & copper alloy machining, as well as carbon/glass fibres or abrasive plastics

Features

DLC Plus Coating

Provides exceptional hardness & low coefficient of friction, preventing fast wear

Nanograin Carbide

Higher heat resistance and hardness for tackling abrasive non-ferrous materials

Self Lubrication

Self-lubrication in dry wear conditions extends tool life and helps dissipate heat

DLC PLUS Coating
Close to Diamond HARDNESS!

With hardness of 6000-7000HV, DLC coating is 3-4 times harder than conventional CVD and PCD coatings and almost as hard as diamond coating.
