Abstract

This study focused on tools used in the hot forging process of lid type components manufactured for the automotive industry. The tools were coated with different PN+PVD hybrid layers in order to improve tool durability. The tool wear represented by material degradation was evaluated through 3D scans of periodically collected samples. The samples’ microhardness and microstructure were also analyzed. The results demonstrated an extent of the hybrid layers efficiency in improving tool durability for industrial forging applications.
