tool coating

March 01, 2015

Midwest Industrial Tool Grinding Inc. has expanded its tool coating capabilities to include surface treatment options. The coating options include AlTiN (aluminum titanium nitride), TiN (titanium nitride), TiCN (titanium carbon nitride), nACo (aluminum titanium nitride and silicon nitride) and nACRo (aluminum chrome nitride and silicon nitride). MITGI coats carbide and HSS tools with round shanks from 1⁄8" to 1" (3.175mm to 25.4mm) in diameter.

  • grinding

    grinding

    Machining operation in which material is removed from the workpiece by a powered abrasive wheel, stone, belt, paste, sheet, compound, slurry, etc. Takes various forms: surface grinding (creates flat and/or squared surfaces); cylindrical grinding (for external cylindrical and tapered shapes, fillets, undercuts, etc.); centerless grinding; chamfering; thread and form grinding; tool and cutter grinding; offhand grinding; lapping and polishing (grinding with extremely fine grits to create ultrasmooth surfaces); honing; and disc grinding.

  • high-speed steels ( HSS)

    high-speed steels ( HSS)

    Available in two major types: tungsten high-speed steels (designated by letter T having tungsten as the principal alloying element) and molybdenum high-speed steels (designated by letter M having molybdenum as the principal alloying element). The type T high-speed steels containing cobalt have higher wear resistance and greater red (hot) hardness, withstanding cutting temperature up to 1,100º F (590º C). The type T steels are used to fabricate metalcutting tools (milling cutters, drills, reamers and taps), woodworking tools, various types of punches and dies, ball and roller bearings. The type M steels are used for cutting tools and various types of dies.
