The machining of hard sheets has to be done with coated tools. The high performance series 8203-H is made from Hard'X coated carbide
-with revolver handle
Hard'X: AITiN with a high hardness (3,700 Hv), this coating shows a high thermic stability and an excellent protection against heat and wear. Ideal for dry machining — high speed cutting — in treated steels and dies. The higher concentration of aluminum in the coating creates for a lower friction coefficient providing greater tool life than traditional TiAIN offerings.
