Friction shortens tool life, impedes metal removal rates, and roughs up workpiece surface finishes. Reducing kinetic friction is a key to improved productivity, longer tool life, and improved surface finish. ATI Stellram (LaVergne, TN) has developed a new coating technology that offers superior bond and uniform layering of the CVD coatings. Proprietary processing produces a jewelry like finish. Five new Stellram® NL turning grades are specifically engineered to provide optimum performance in a given application and workpiece material, resulting in increased metal removal rates, improved surface finishes, and up to 30 percent longer tool life, says the company.
