Titanium Nitride Coated
Heavy Duty w/ Weldon Shanks & Hougen Edge®
TiN Coated for Extra Wear
TiN coated M2 high speed steel Hougen Cutters are for higher speeds, greater endurance, deep holes, and harder materials. The TiN coating reduces friction and operates at cooler temperatures while presenting a harder cutting edge surface. Increased speeds of 15 to 25% are recommended to obtain the optimal benefits of this coating option. Reduction in friction and resistance to edge build-up are the key benefits of TiN coating. The ability to run at higher speeds with less power is most helpful for applications where the machine tool is underpowered at low speeds. TiN Coated tools are recommended for use on materials to 325 BHN. Reground tools will give comparable results to those of new tools, since regrinding is only performed on the end clearance.
