Punching and forming technologies

Punching and forming nowadays technologies would be unthinkable without coated tools.
PVD-coated active components offer the following advantages:

  • greater number of strokes and longer lifecycles
  • greater range of forming and lower cutting forces for fewer steps
  • friction-optimised active components need less coolant and lubricant
  • fewer build-ups and galling lead to greater production reliability. In addition, the tools need less cleaning and the surface quality of the produced parts rises
  • longer lifecycles cut tooling costs radically – likewise the quality costs for each restart
