Platit coatings offer the highest standard of modern coating technology for tool steels (cold/hot work steel, high speed steels, HSS, HSCO, M42, ...) ang tungsten carbides (WC). All work pieces can be coated with a programmable coating thickness between 1 and 10μm. All batches are coated with absolute uniformity, ensuring the repeatability of the coating's quality.
The PLATIT hard coatings reduce the abrasive, adhesive and crater wear on the tools for conventional wet, dry and high speed machining. Modern coating technology reduces ARC droplets and the friction between chip and tool.
PLATIT technology ensures an increase in tool life through the reduction of friction on punches, molds and dies.
For forming applications, such as extrusion, molding, deep-drawing, coining, PLATIT hard coatings reduce friction, wear, build-up edges and atriation. Re-polishing of functional surfaces is not necessary in most cases.
PLATIT hard coatings solve tribological problems with machine components that can be coated at temperatures of 200-500°C. Due to the hardness (up to 36 GPa), abrasive wear is reduced. This leads to higher reliability for dry operations and environmentally damaging lubricants can be replaced.
The PLATIT hard coatings increase productivity for plastic forming and forming machine components with better release and lower wear. Low roughness and excellent surface texture improve part release and influence injection forces in the mold to allow shorter cycle times. For parts with a minor finish, re-polishing after coating is recommended. Due to physical limitations, deep holes and slots are seldom coat-able.
