Surface Technology Coatings Services
Using world-leading technology, coatings are available to solve a wide range of problems relating to friction and wear, thereby improving tool performance and increasing tool life.
Vacuum Heat Treatment
The aim is to provide the customer with a heat treated product that has the optimum combination of hardness and microstructure while keeping distortion to a minimum.
The revolutionary NitroPlas system generates a plasma on a large cage surrounding the entire workload in a vacuum furnace. The workload is uniformly and efficiently heated by the cage.
Surface Technology Coatings Types
Surface Technology Coatings (STC) is a part of Sutton Tools, a family owned Australian company operating since 1917. STC was established in 1988 to provide a Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) coating service to industry. Since that time STC has grown to be at the forefront of heat treatment and surface engineering technology.
We are the only commercial facility in Australia offering high pressure quench vacuum heat treatment, plasma nitriding and PVD hard thin film coatings under the one roof. Additionally, we offer a complete regrinding and recoating service. Surface Technology Coatings carries out research and development with Australia’s leading Universities and research organisations to develop innovative services that keep STC ahead of the competition.
