Minimum Cycle Times for Optimum Conditions
  • Shank tools (2 μm): ø 10 x 70 mm, 504 pcs: 4 h
  • Inserts (3 μm): ø 20 x 6 mm, 2940 pcs: 4.5 h
  • Hobs (4 μm): ø 80 x 180 mm, 28 pcs: 6 h

*: The cycle times can be achieved under the following conditions:

  • solid carbide tools (no outgassing necessary)
  • high quality cleaning before the coating process (short etching)
  • continuous operation (pre-heated chamber)
  • 4-cathode processes
  • use of fast cooling (e.g. with helium, opening the chamber at 200°C)
  • 5 (up to 6) batches / day
