Micro tools must have perfectly smooth surfaces for trouble-free chip removal and to reduce formation of built-up edges.
BALIQ® MICRO ALCRONOS, which was specially developed to meet the requirements of micro drills and milling cutters, ensures the highest possible smoothness and flawlessness, whilst, at the same time, providing outstanding adhesion. As an AlCrN-based coating, BALIQ® MICRO ALCRONOS is also highly wear-resistant when subjected to high temperatures and exhibits almost no tendency to stick, even with stainless steels and other difficult-to-machine materials. The special properties of the BALIQ® coating eliminates the need for mechanical post-treatment.
- High micro-machining process reliability and efficiency
- No post-treatment required
- Precise, high performance coating
- Reliable production of critical and expensive components
