Deposition of Multi-Functional Coatings by Physical Vapour Deposition
Multifunctional coatings open new dimensions due to a combination of properties like high friction and wear resistance, electrical attributes, heat or corrosion protection in one system. In this study multifunctional coatings for in-situ temperature measurements on cutting inserts as well as multilayer coatings have been investigated. Corresponding metallurgical analyses together with mechanical tests are presented.
