Karnasch tool coatings

Tool coatings for longer tool lives

For optimal machining results, professionals rely on tool coatings. Tool coatings have the advantage that they increase tool life significantly - even with insufficient cooling or lubrication. In addition, tool coatings achieve a consistent increase in productivity in machining processes.

Karnasch Professional Tools develops high performance tool coatings that are specially adjusted to the materials to be machined. Karnasch tool coatings convince with their excellent characteristics, not only in tool life and accuracy, but also in the worldwide unique tool tolerance, especially for diamond-coated tools for graphite processing.

Karnasch offers several tool coatings for the machining of various materials: from droplet-free nanocrystalline diamond toll coatings frpm BLACK-TEC, BLUE-TEC, BLUE-DUR and DURABLUE to HXC-Nano3, Tcx3, NHC-7000, Kx, DMC-X2, TiN as well as TiN-GOLD.
