The methods of obtaining wear-resistant coatings on the basis of W and Cr metal nitrides are considered in this work, their advantages and disadvantages are characterized. The modes of condensation of such coatings with different component ratios in a magnetron system with constant magnets are chosen. The study of microstructure and structural-phase composition was carried out. It has been established that the influence of the precipitation temperature (600 °C) used in this paper has led to a faster growth of grains in the precipitation of Cr-W-N coatings. From the analysis of the elemental composition of the coatings it is possible to observe a clear correlation between the composition of the target and the composition of the coating. Studies carried out on a scanning electron microscope of composite Cr-W-N coatings showed a nanocrystalline structure with a grain size of 50 nm. The microhardness of the obtained coatings was investigated and the obtained results were analyzed. The microhardness of the nanosized coatings was about 3 GPa to cover Cr39W11N50 and 5 GPa to cover Cr75W1N24.
