Inveio – Uni-directional crystal orientation

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

​Inveio™ is the technological breakthrough of uni-directional crystal orientation in the alumina coating layer that gives inserts a new level of wear resistance and tool life.

 

 

​The material science behind Inveio

In conventional CVD alumina coatings, crystal growth direction is random. When developing Inveio™, our experts found a way to control the growth in this coating layer to ensure that all of the crystals line up in the same direction, with the strongest part toward the top surface. This can be seen in the microscope images below, where each crystal direction is given a unique color.

 

In conventional CVD alumina coatings, the crystal orientation is random.

 

With Inveio, every crystal in the alumina coating is lined up in the same direction, toward the top surface.

Innovation never sleeps

In 1969, the same year as the first moon landing, Sandvik Coromant introduced the world's first CVD-coated, cemented carbide insert—an ISO P25 grade. Since then, we have continued to lead the way in tool material- and process development. GC4325 is the 7th generation of that grade and is once again a ground-breaking technological breakthrough.

 

The Inveio effect 

The tightly packed, uni-directional crystals create a strong barrier toward the cutting zone and chip. This greatly improves crater wear and flank wear resistance. Another effect is that heat is more rapidly lead away from the cutting zone, helping the cutting edge stay in shape for longer times in cut.

Predictability and long tool life

Inveio™ has the greatest single effect on the insert strength, wear resistance, and tool duration. The effect of the Inveio coating is combined with all other elements of the insert: the substrate, the shape of the cutting edge, and the post-treatment process. Together, this results in long and predictable tool life.
