PRODUCT SHOWCASE: Ti-Coating announces its Hyperlox coating for finish machining in stainless steel and other materials with difficult properties


Ti-Coating has announced its new PVD coating Hyperlox for indexable and solid carbide tooling. The Altin-based coating provides excellent machining characteristics and extends tool life for a variety of applications including turning, threading and milling. Ideal for finishing, the wear-resistant properties of Hyperlox allow it to machine stainless steel and other materials with difficult properties. The supernitride coating also provides high oxidation resistance.

“Hyperlox is a coating that provides consistent wear resistance for stainless steel which tends to be sticky and cause edge build up”, said Keith Metzinger, sales manager for Ti-Coating. “The coating has high thermal stability and is very well suited for machining hardened steel and high strength material.”

The properties of Hyperlox reduce this tendency dramatically and contribute to longer tool life and predictable performance. The coating is one of the latest additions to the company’s range of coatings.

In addition to the gear manufacturing industry, the Hyperlox could also potentially serve related industries such a aerospace, automotive, and power generation.

“This coating is applicable for dry and wet machining at highest productivity and re-coating possible at a high quality level,” Metzinger said.
