This Swiss R&D company develops carbides with unique features. The main scope is hardened steels and hard materials (less than 68 HRC) machining. Patented multilayer PVD-coating technology and carbide materials of submicron grading provide high levels of tool life and thermal stability. Carbide tools by LAMINA TECHNOLOGIES are produced from unique submicron powders using special technology. These tools a capable of machining hardened steels and alloys with hardness comparable with hardness of ultra-hard tool materials. At the same time the price of LAMINA tools is from 5 to 10 times lower than of ceramic, CBN or PSD tools.
