Highly precise tools are required to produce components with high quality surfaces. The accuracy provided by new tools however declines with use. With the micron-precise BALIQ®ALCRONOS, precision tools such as thread formers, taps, reamers and stamping punches retain as-new precision, and process reliability is boosted.
Tool change frequency is noticeably reduced, even with hard-to-machine materials such as titanium and stainless steel, or when stamping challenging material such as Corson alloys. The revolutionary smooth coating ensures superb surfaces and, thus, top production quality. The AlCrN-based coating is, moreover, markedly less prone to built-up edge formation.
