BALIQ TAP ALCRONOSThe coating revolution for thread formers and taps

Outstanding surface quality and precision for thread formers and taps
Revolutionary thread forming and tapping mastery

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.
