New insert coating, LATUMA

We have done some test in the USA with our new L-coating with good results in material such as G-X6CrNiMo1810 (CF8M).

This new L-coating can work up to 100°C higher temperature than our R-coating.

It is the need to further boost productivity in processing and deploying a wide variety of challenging materials while improving process reliability even under the most difficult circumstances.

Benefits with L-coating:

  • The high aluminium content enhances oxidation resistance and hot hardness
  • The balanced coating hardness versus residual stress ratio opens up a broad spectrum of applications
  • High chemical stability optimizes crater wear resistance
  • Optimised thermal shock resistance makes L-coating ideal for wet and dry machining
  • Greater productivity thanks to higher cutting speeds and feed rates
  • Reliability and long tool service lives for maximized machine capacity utilization
