Cutting tool and wear parts substrates have benefited from enormous engineering advances over recent decades. Thin film coatings, when properly applied, improve tool and part characteristics and functionality. They increase surface hardness, lower the friction coefficient and thermal conductivity and provide a chemically inert surface. As a cutting tool manufacturer, Guhring offers a level of coating expertise without equal in the industry. Guhring was the first to introduce TiN coating to tools in 1980 and has remained the global leader in developing and applying new coating technology. Today, Guhring offers a full range of high performance PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coatings to meet customers’ diverse needs.
