Tiger▪tec® Silver

The technology: unique worldwide

Tiger▪tec® Silver: the standard

Since the introduction of the globally unique CVD coating technology, Tiger▪tec®Silver has been determining the direction in which machining is heading, with increases in performance of up to 100 %.

The key benefits of the new technology are as follows for turning, milling and drilling:

  • Enormous toughness due to optimum residual stress
  • Reduction in machining time through the use of aluminium oxide with optimised microstructure
  • Greatly reduced tribochemical wear thanks to perfect, smooth cutting surfaces
  • Not susceptible to thermal stress variations during wet and dry machining

Tiger▪tec® Silver – machining was yesterday,
today is all about Tiger.

Turning:

  • Aluminium oxide with optimised microstructure offers a 50 % longer tool life under conditions of crater wear and also reduced machining times
  • Mechanical post-treatment - unique residual stress rate, increased process reliability
  • Large, universal chip breaking area and longer tool life for ISO P geometries
  • Ground seating surface after coating for improved process reliability when working with interrupted cuts
  • Silver flank face indicator layer for extremely easy wear detection
  • Microedge technology offers a 30 % longer tool life under conditions of flank face wear or plastic deformation
  • Extremely smooth rake face for excellent tribochemical wear resistance

Milling:

  • Mechanical post-treatment, unique residual stress rate, increased process reliability
  • Extremely smooth rake face for excellent tribochemical wear resistance
  • Silver flank face indicator layer for extremely easy wear detection

Drilling:

  • Outer indexable insert with increased wear resistance thanks to unique aluminium oxide layer, ideal for use as a peripheral cutting edge
  • Tougher than previous Tiger▪tec® CVD coatings. Optimised residual strength and a combination of toughness and wear resistance make this the first choice for a centre insert
  • Low wear due to extremely smooth rake face.
