More and more complex workpiece geometries, new materials and the high demand for accuracy pose particular challenges for cutting tools modern mechanical engineering. These high mechanical and thermal stresses result in high abrasion, increased risk of chipping and formation of cracks on cutting tools, which shortens tool service life and reduces productivity. To meet these challenging machining demands, Oerlikon Balzers has developed the versatile BALINIT® DURANA coating:

  • A tailored combination of coating structure and properties significantly reduces abrasive wear, resulting in longer tool service life.
  • Combination of AlTiN-based and TiSiXN layers gives BALINIT® DURANA a high degree of ductility and superior abrasive wear resistance even at extreme service temperatures, resulting in hugely improved performance during demanding machining operations.
Superior resistance against abrasive wear Optimised layer structure: a combination of high ductility of the AlTiN-based layer and outstanding wear resistance of the outermost TiSiXN layer
Minimised chipping Tailored combination of the coating structure and properties contributes to increased toughness of cutting edge
Significantly reduced crack formation Defined stress profile in the coating significantly reduces crack formation and propagation during alternating thermal loads
Protection of the cutting edge from high temperatures and oxidation BALINIT® DURANA provides outstanding protection against oxidation even at high temperatures
