Diamond-Like Carbon coating from Sumitomo Electric Carbide aids in the dry machining of aluminum alloys and nonferrous applications. The coating enables cutting tools to maintain their properties, including high hardness, good lubrication, low friction coefficient, smooth surface, corrosion resistance, and longer tool life, even in conditions of harsh-environment cutting. It promotes good chip control and has a low friction coefficient of ยต = 0.05 to 0.2, even without lubricants. Aluminum alloy adhesion on the edge is suppressed, thus decreasing cutting resistance. In addition, generation of built-up edge is eliminated, maintaining the sharpness of the edge and improving the quality of the cutting material. Chips are removed effectively, preventing the material from being scratched and preventing deterioration of the machined surface caused by re-adhesion to the cutting material.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
