Minimum Cycle Times
for Optimum Conditions*

• Shank tools (2 µm): ø 10 x 70 mm, 504 pcs: 4 h
• Inserts (3 µm): ø 20 x 6 mm, 2940 pcs: 4.5 h
• Hobs (4 µm): ø 80 x 180 mm, 28 pcs: 6 h
*: The cycle times can be achieved under the following conditions:

• solid carbide tools (no outgassing necessary)
• high quality cleaning before the coating process (short etching)
continuous operation (pre-heated chamber)
• 4-cathode processes
• use of fast cooling (e.g. with helium, opening the chamber at 200°C)
• 5 (up to 6) batches / day
