BALDIA NANOHigh-performance machining of fibre-reinforced composites, stack materials and Al alloys


Tools coated with BALDIA® NANO can reliably machine fibre-reinforced composites (GFRP, CFRP), stack materials and Al alloys (Si>12%).

Selecting the ideal interface engineering prevents burr formation and delamination. Tight tolerances can be achieved for the coating thickness or the tool diameter.

Longer tool life and better surface quality significantly reduce manufacturing costs.

Note: BALDIA NANO was previously named BALINIT DIAMOND NANO.

  • Advantages


    • Highest abrasive wear resistance
    • Less sticking of metallic stack materials (e.g. aluminium and titanium) to the tool
    • Allows optimum process reliability and productivity
    • Excellent coating thickness distribution on rake face of inserts

    General remark All given data are approximate values, they depend on application, environment and test condition.
    *Coating hardness HIT[GPa] Measured by nano indentation according to ISO 14577. For multilayers the hardness of the different layers varies.
    ****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
