EMO 2019: New Coating IG35 from Horn

New Coating IG35 with High Heat Resistance

The new IG35 insert coating allows Horn to offer high performance and long tool life when machining stainless steels, titanium alloys and superalloys. In combination with the 3V and FY geometries, the aluminium titanium silicon nitride coating prevents the formation of built-up edges due to the low coefficient of friction. Thanks to HiPIMS coating technology, the coating exhibits very smooth properties and high heat resistance. Furthermore, the tool coating is free from defects such as inclusions or other coating faults at the cutting edge.

Horn adapts the coating system, the chipbreaker geometries and the micro-geometries to applications such as internal and external grooving, longitudinal turning, circular interpolation milling and solid carbide milling. The user can achieve higher cutting parameters, enabling a shorter cycle time, which in turn has a positive impact on unit production costs. The use of the new coating also leads to higher surface qualities.

The IG35 coating is available for the S100, S101, S224, S229, and S274 grooving systems as well as for the circular interpolation milling and solid carbide milling systems.
