Coating Applications

FeinAl®

Superior PLATIT dependability in wear-protection and life extension for fineblanking operations.

Tru-PLEX

A unique Tru-Edge coating with stoichiometry engineered for high production applications in the forming, punching, bending and deep drawing industries.

CYBER-Coat MP™

A Tru-Edge enhanced TICN-MP coating for the stamping industry and traditional tool and die applications.

TiN

General-purpose coating for injection molding and guide pins.

ALL4®

New generation QUAD Coatings4® to improve cutting performance in a variety of materials. This is the one to deploy to improve tool life over old generation AlTiN coatings- this is the Tru-Edge standard for universal applications.

TixCo4®

Fourth generation coating optimized for superhard machining, milling and drilling – great choice for hard-to-cut aerospace materials.

nACo®

Nanocomposite coating with extremely high nanohardness and heat resistance – excels in high-performance, dry applications - think stainless steel milling.

nACRo®

Nanocomposite coating delivering extremely high scratch and heat resistance. Exceptional coating for drilling steel and most drill applications

TiCN-MP

Tough multipurpose coating for interruptedcutting and milling.

ALTiN

our old-generation coating used universally in cutting tool applications. For improved performance try the Tru-Edge ALL4® – new generation coating.

AlCrN

Multilayer coating with high wear resistance against abrasive loads. Good heat and oxidation resistance. Performs well in milling applications. Outstanding for very dry applications.

ZrN

Monolayer coating for reduction of edge buildup when machining aluminum (<12% Si content). With good resistance to heat, this coating is a great choice to machine titanium alloys – excellent for machining Ti-based orthopedic implants.

CrN

Best choice for machining copper and has application for wood routing tools.

TiN

General-purpose coating – the old standard. Unique application – apply the Tru-Edge “Flash Coat TiN” to indexable carbide inserts to enable operators to easily identify used and worn edges.
