BALIQ TAP ALCRONOSThe coating revolution for thread formers and taps×
Precise tools are required when tapping or thread forming high-quality products. The accuracy provided by new tools however declines with use. With BALIQ® TAP ALCRONOS, thread formers and taps 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. The revolutionary smooth coating ensures superb thread surfaces and, thus, top production quality. The AlCrN-based coating is, moreover, markedly less prone to built-up edge formation.
BALIQ® TAP ALCRONOS provides much higher tool lifetimes than conventional TiN or TiCN coatings, and thereby clearly increases efficiency.
