Surface Treatments of End Mills
TiN (Titanium Nitride): Provides extremely high hardness and heat resistance, enabling TiN-coated tools
to operate at higher speeds and feed. For general purpose use, TiN offers higher lubricity for more free chip flow and reduces the formation of edges and pits. Use caution on non-ferrous materials because of a tendency. Need to increase 25% to 30% of the processing speed and uncoated tools.
TiCN (Titanium Carbide): harder and more wear-resistant than TiN at mild cutTiNg temperatures. TiCN can provide users with the ability to run jobs at higher speeds (over 50%), especially stainless steel. Use caution on non-ferrous materials because of a tendency. Need to increase 35% to 50% of the processing speed and uncoated tools.
TiAlN (titanium aluminum titanium nitride): Ideal conditions to produce extremely high temperatures, TiAlN allows users to increase the surface area per minute feet (SFM), to extend tool life and reduce the use of coolant. Suitable for stainless steel, high alloy steel, nickel base superalloy and titanium alloy. Use caution in non-ferrous materials because of a tendency. Need to increase 75% to 100% of the processing speed and uncoated tools.
AlTiN (aluminum titanium aluminum nitride): for aircraft / aerospace materials, nickel alloys, stainless steel and titanium. Allow aggressive speed and feed. For dry machining of cast iron, ductile iron and selected carbon steel. Need to increase 75-100% of the processing speed and uncoated tools
Laser coaTiNg: for high-speed polishing and aluminum and other light metals. Laser is very effective in abrasive materials such as graphite, plastic and high silica-alumina. Laser coaTiNg provides twice as much TiN, extending tool life and reducing edge wear.
ZrN (zirconium nitride): The use of improved finished products in aluminum, brass, copper and other non-ferrous materials. Has an oxidation temperature above TiN, resists heated aluminum, increases lubricity, and prevents "edge build-up."
