BALIQ ALCRONOS coated taps and reamers
Reamers are required to produce high quality products and high quality surfaces
Outstanding surface quality and precision for thread formers and taps
Outstanding surface quality and precision for thread formers and taps
Revolutionary thread forming and tapping mastery

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.

  • Reliable machining and forming
  • Reduced tool costs
  • Precision, high-performance coating
  • New manufacturing options
  • Superior manufacturing quality
  • Reliable mechanical finishing
  • High surface quality
Revolutionary smooth and defect-free coatings with outstanding adhesion Superior process reliability under all application conditions, no post-treatment necessary
Low susceptibility to sticking of AlCrN-based coatings Prevention of adhesion and build-up edges even with difficult-to-machine materials such as titanium and stainless steels
High wear resistance of AlCrN-based coatings even under severe thermal stress Long tool lives, even under MQL and dry machining conditions
High coating thickness precision The ultimate in tool precision
Precision coating of ultra-sharp cutting edges Significant performance gains mainly with smallest chip thicknesses or when stamping micro components, and optimised component surface quality
