Nowadays, tool surface treatments and coating are of crucial importance to achieve excellent machining performance. This is the reason why SILMAX has decided to invest forces and resources by devoting special attention to the study of surface treatments and coating quality.
Silmax Super Shiny Surface (4S) Treatment
The OTEC 4S treatment for a superfinishing of the cutting-edge surface, before and after the coating process, is studied to guarantee:
- Extension of tool life
- Increase of cutting parameters
- Extreme design of cutting geometries
Relying on the experience gained during its thirty-year partnership with Oerlikon Balzers, in 2013 Silmax opened a new factory dedicated to PVD coating in its premises of Lanzo Torinese, with INNOVENTA kila e INGENIA equipments.
Silmax is able to satisfy all needs for PVD coating of tools and other components and for R&D activities.
