Melin Tool operates our own, IN-HOUSE PVD coating work center. This provides our customers with the highest level of consistency in coating composition and the most flexibility in coating selection.
We’ve chosen Platit because of superior performance their coating on solid round cutting tools.
With Platit’s revolutionary and patented LARC® and CERC® technologies, Melin is able to provide far greater consistency from batch to batch. As well as, superior adhesion for its conventional coatings. We have no issues designing a unique, specially tailored coatings designed for enhancing performance in your specific applications.
We currently house several Platit machines, including the π311, which has more than 3 times the chamber capacity of our other units. We now have the ability to do next generation high performance triple coatings. Our equipment enables us to coat more tools, provide more coating types and to do so with shorter setups and changeover time. Equally important, we can provide our customers with unique coatings for their specific application to truly maximize the performance achievable with Melin cutting tools.
The Manufacturers Advantage
Melin’s highest quality manufacturing on state-of-the-art CNC equipment ensures superior performance with reliable, as well as consistent quality!

Not all coatings are the same.
|TICN: Titanium Carbonitride has an exceptional high hardness & low coefficient of friction coating which provides excellent wear resistance. TiCN performs well cutting Alloy Steels, Stainless Steels, and in high speed cutting where moderate temperatures are generated at the cutting edge.
|ALTiN: Aluminum Titanium Nitride is ideal for high temperature cutting operation in many materials such as Titanium & Nickel Alloys, Co-Cr-Mo, Stainless Steel, Alloy Steels & Cast Iron. When exposed to higher temperatures, it forms a HARD aluminum oxide layer and, as temperatures increase, the coating insulates the tool transferring heat into the chips.
|nACo: Aluminum Titanium Nitride + Silicon Nitride coating is extremely well suited for high
performance DRILLING and MILLING applications.
|nACRo: Aluminum Chrome Nitride + Silicon Nitride coating is an excellent coating for high
ABRASIVE wear and HEAT resistance. A top layer with high hardness and toughness.
|ZrN: Zirconium Nitride coating is a coating developed specifically for machining ALUMINUM, yet excellent when machining all Non-Ferrous materials.
|CVD Diamond: CVD diamond coating takes place in a vacuum chamber using a hot-filament, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. Carbon gases are introduced into the vacuum chamber where high temperatures cause carbon atoms to re-bond into a 100% pure crystalline diamond structure. The crystalline diamond slowly grows on the surface of cutting tools, forming a continuous coating of up to 20 microns in thickness.
|DLC Diamond: DLC amorphous diamond coating is a less expensive alternative to CVD Diamond. This PVD process of applying DLC coating produces hard, smooth, hydrogen free diamond like carbon (DLC) film.
|TiB2: Titanium DiBoride is well suited for high performance drilling and milling.
|TiXCo: TiXCo is a nACo based coating with a top layer of Titanium Silicon Nitride.
|ALL4: Aluminum Titanium Nitride is ideal for high temperature cutting operation in many materials such as Titanium & Nickel Alloys, Co-Cr-Mo, Stainless Steel, Alloy Steels & Cast Iron.
