Coating Services

ACT offers you the ideal coating for your cutting tools and we ensure quality when it comes to our coatings. We provide a variety of coating services including Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) and Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coatings. Many of our DLC and PVD coatings can significantly enhance the quality, durability, and performance of your cutting tools. Our team can develop exclusive advanced coatings that can exceed your expectations. ACT has more than a decade of coating cutting tools and our team offers a 24/48 hour speedy turnaround with our delivery system.

We utilize the latest technology with advanced machinery such as the MoS2 machine for our coating process. The MoS2 coating creates a permanent bond with the surface it is applied to. This coating does not react to lubricants when used and the coating will continue to remain strong.

Our entire team production process is designed to improve the quality of your tools & parts and is flexibly adapted to your requirements. ACT offers ideal coating technologies that allow for the best surface coverage by improving the hardness & resistance to oxidation along with wear & tear. Our extensive in-house testing capabilities creates a consistent and quality finish throughout the process.
