Title: LOADING SYSTEM FOR PVD COATING OF CUTTING INSERTS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a method of fixturing cutting tool inserts in a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating equipment. The method consists in using a tube manufactured of a non-magnetic metallic material surrounding a stack of alternating discs of a magnetic material and iron. The north poles of the magnets are directed towards each other and the cutting inserts are positioned on the outer wall of the solid tube and kept in place by the magnetic forces.
