Cutting Tools

Cutting tools with PVD coating can cut much harder materials. This is especially useful for applications that require a very tough edge, such as threading, end-milling, grooving, and drilling. Coating your part, item or product has many benefits to the cutting & forming tool industry. The use of a PVD coating has become widespread, particularly in applications where the cutting edge is required to be hard or sharp.

Titanium Coating Service offers many PVD coatings, each with its own benefits. Based on your requirements, we’ll work with you to select the best option.


Cutting Tools – Help extend the life of your cutting tools. Applying a PVD coating will allow you to reduce costs and have less down time.The tools can be run faster, which decreases cycle time and allows components to be produced more quickly. The increased resilience provided by the coating means the tools don’t flake or wear-out as much. This greatly increases the tools’ surface life and they don’t need to be replaced as frequently. They also avoid the built-up edge that often develops. The tools can be operated at a higher temperature with no harm, which facilitates particular uses. Cutting tools with PVD coating need less cutting fluid (which can cost as much as 15% of total production costs) because PVD coatings such as AlTiN can deal with very high temperatures without requiring any additional coolant or oil.

Aerospace and Automotive

The wear resistance and corrosion protection provided by our coatings enable materials to be used in many aerospace and automotive applications. These super-hard and low friction coatings stop the formation of macro and submicroscopic wear debris, enabling longer life for critical components.

Our coatings make it the perfect choice for the demanding automotive industry.
Benefits include

  • Enhanced performance
  • Improved safety
  • Even reduction of emissions and consumption

Molds and Dies

Titanium Coating Services Provides several coatings for which can greatly increase the life of plastic injection molds and
aluminum die cast/injection molds. Tools used in plastic injection molding are subject to abrasion from glass filled polymers or other composite materials, sliding friction during processing or ejection, corrosion from resins or physical damage from routine handling. TCS Beta Series coatings possess the toughness, abrasion resistance, resistance to corrosive attack and low friction in order to improve the productivity of these tools.

TCS Beta series coating of cores greatly reduces aluminum soldering. Field results show an average production uptime increase of 85% as a result of the reduction of aluminum soldering.

Beta Series coatings have a proven track record of performance improvements of tools in a wide variety of applications.

  • High strength material forming
  • Non ferrous material forming
  • Cold forging
  • Powder compaction
  • Blanking and trimming
  • Piercing
  • Hot stamping

  • Hot extrusion and forging
  • Plastic injection molding and film extrusion


The coatings required by the medical industry are of the most critical supplied by the coating industry today. The nature of PVD coatings being applied in a clean, vacuum environment with improved adhesion and a higher-quality surface coating that will be durable and improve the appearance, wear and corrosion-resistance of your instruments.

Surgeons are among the most highly educated professionals in our society. Providing them with the highest quality instruments, the most advanced designs, the best steel possible and the most advanced surface treatments to enhance the instruments performance is what they expect. TCS can help you provide the highest quality, most dependable, innovative surface treatments available in today’s market. Whether you would like to improve your instrument’s corrosion resistance, reduce wear of moving parts, or use a coating for identification purposes, TCS can provide you with the surface treatment you require.
