BALINIT LATUMA The compelling solution for inserts, end mills and drills

BALINIT LATUMA What do tool manufacturers, mechanical engineering, the aerospace industry, and reconditioners have in common? It‘s the need to further boost productivity in processing and deploying a wide variety of challenging materials while improving process reliability even under the most difficult circumstances. The common denominator is BALINIT® LATUMA, the persuasive coating for inserts and shank tools in metal machining.
Coating Properties: BALINIT LATUMA
Coating Material AlTiN-based
Microhardness* (HV 0.05) 3,000
Friction coefficient* against steel (dry) 0.35

* depends on application and test conditions

BALINIT® LATUMA is based on latest-generation target technology and the systematic refinement of BALINIT® FUTURA NANO and X.CEED coatings.

  • Ultra-modern target technology is harnessed for optimised coating structures and surfaces
  • The high aluminium content enhances oxidation resistance and hot hardness
  • The balanced coating hardness versus residual stress ratio opens up a broad spectrum of applications
  • High chemical stability optimises crater wear resistance
  • Optimised thermal shock resistance makes BALINIT® LATUMA ideal for wet and dry machining
BALINIT® LATUMA pushes the performance of your tools to guarantee
  • Versatility and flexibility in the productive deployment of our tools
  • Superior results in dry and wet machining
  • Greater productivity thanks to higher cutting speeds and feed rates
  • Reliability and long tool service lives for maximised machine capacity utilisation
  • Excellent prerequisites for reconditioning tools without any performance degradation

Recommended applications

  • Milling and turning with inserts in stainless steel, HRSA, cast iron, steel
  • Carbide and HSS endmills: stainless steel, HRSA, cast iron, difficult tool steel, high alloy steels, high strength and high hardness materials
  • Carbide and HSS drills: stainless steel, HRSA, cast iron, steel, difficult tool steel, high alloy steels, high strength and high hardness materials
