Zertivo™ is a unique production technology of Sandvik Coromant that brings longer tool life, improved predictability and enhanced security to PVD grades.
The innovation behind the technology
Creating a high-quality PVD coating includes many complex process steps, the main ones being pumping, heating, etching, coating and cooling. Process parameters such as temperature, gas flow and pressure, for example, are crucial for the final tool performance. Process conditions have a direct impact on the grade and, in the end, on how the tool performs in your machine. Zertivo™ takes technology process control to a new level, from the beginning to the end of the PVD production process. Each grade is produced in conditions exactly right for that specific grade. The result is improved adhesion between substrate and coating and optimized cutting edge integrity.
