The most critical time for any tool is the initial break-in period. Tooling or components that are coated usually have a much longer useful life–well beyond that of an uncoated tool or component. This session will review which coatings work best in different cutting/drilling applications or materials. Additional takeaways will include the advantage of coating cutting tools, including reduction of tool usage, increased speeds and feeds, decreasing machine downtime, and improving the finished part quality.
