Misenheimer offers EnduroCoat coated solid carbide tools for CNC applications. EnduroCoat is an ultra thin PVD coating which adds an ultra-hard layer that resists heat and abrasion, thus reducing cutting edge breakdown, the company says. Tools can also be re-coated after service. Another benefit of the coating is added lubricity for better chip evacuation. EndurCoat can also extend the life of a tool by up to four times compared to non-coated tools, Misenheimer adds.
