Tip of the Month
August 2014
The purpose of any surface treatment is to improve wear resistance and thread finish and to improve productivity by increasing your cutting speeds. Each coating has special advantages for different applications. While it would be impossible to list all of the materials recommended for each coating type, following are some general guidelines.

TiN
Titanium Nitride provides excellent wear resistance with a wide range of materials and usually allows the use of higher speeds and feeds. Low carbon steels, both free-machining and non-free-machining, stainless steel and alloy steels work well with TiN.

TiCN
Titanium Carbonitride
offers improved wear resistance with abrasive or difficult to machine materials such as cast iron, aluminum alloys, tool steels, copper and its alloys, Iconel and titanium alloys.

TiAIN
Titanium Aluminum Nitride
is a high-performance coating that excels at threading the same materials as TiCN but offers improved ductility and superior oxidation resistance for threading heat-treated carbon and alloy steels where high temperatures are generated from cutting coarse pitch Acmes or special thread forms.

CrN
Chromium Nitride
is the newest coating available from Quality Chaser. It provides a lower coefficient to friction, reduces galling and tearing, and provides a consistent surface finish. This coating works well when threading titanium alloys.

To achieve optimum life from your perishable tooling, recoating is advised after the cutting edge is reground.

Each of these coatings is available, factory-direct, from Quality Chaser. Give us a call and we'll be happy to help you select the optimum coating for your particular application.
