This article focuses on the ion beam-based coating technology that offers benefits for performance coatings. Many processes are used to apply performance coatings to precision machined components and manufacturing tooling. However, most processes have certain limitations in terms of the application temperatures required, the types of base materials that can be coated, and the need for post-coating refinishing. Heat treatment affects the entire volume of the substrate material and extends to the surface region. INSET: IBED coating benefits.
