Harvey Performance Company Vice President of Engineering Jeff Davis was interviewed in Advanced Manufacturing’s May 2, 2017 article entitled “Coatings Expand Cutting Tool Capabilities, Reach New Markets,” in which he discusses the proper use of tool coatings.
As the lead engineer for the Harvey Tool and Helical Solutions brands, Davis is well versed in the world of miniature and large diameter tooling, as well as several different coating options.
“Different coatings address different concerns,” said Davis. “Some coatings, when used improperly, can cause problems, including stickiness and galling. Although diamond works well in graphite and composites, ferrous applications could result in excessive thermal build-up, coating breakdown, and damage for both the tool and the part.”
