Solid carbide drill - Which coating for which application?

Users in the machining sector are dealing with extremely diverse and sometimes very special materials when it comes to machining. The difference in materials is for instance in the composition, quality, hardness and abrasiveness. These diverse properties also pose various challenges in machining. All the more reason to select the suitable coating for the appropriate tool. Using a cutting tool with an optimal coating can play a significant role and contribute greatly to a better machining result.
