IonBond, Madison Heights, MI, details its lineup of thin-film PVD, PA-CVD, CVD and TD coating technologies in a new brochure, Stamping & Forming Applications: High Value Solutions. Advantages from using the coatings, according to company officials, include downtime reduction, enhanced productivity, improved tool life, improved part finishes, reduced maintenance costs and reduced lubrication usage, with the coatings serving as environmentally friendly substitutes for hard-chrome plating.
