BALIQ MICRO TISINOSThe coating solution for micro-machining of hardened steels up to HRC 70

Long tool lifetimes, even under the harshest conditions
TiSiN-based coating using Oerlikon Balzers S3p™ technology.

AlTiN/TiSiN-based BALIQ® MICRO TISINOS complements the AlCrN-based product, BALIQ® MICRO ALCRONOS, and enables micro-machining of hardened steels in the hardness range of HRC 50 to 70. Exceptionally wear-resistant, also at extreme application temperatures, it allows reliable manufacturing of even the most delicate surface structures. Outstanding surface quality and trouble-free chip removal ensure high component quality, and eliminate the need for mechanical post-machining treatments, such as grinding or expensive polishing.

Your benefits:  long tool lifetimes, even under the harshest conditions as well as high process reliability and noticeable cost and time savings.

  • Advantages


    Revolutionary smooth and defect-free coatings with outstanding adhesion


    High component quality due to coating surface quality and problemfree chip evacuation without mechanical post-treatment

    High coating thickness precision for very sharp edges


    The ultimate in tool precision

    Outstanding wear resistance of AlTiN/TiSiN-based coatings, even at extreme service temperatures as in hard machining


    Very high thermal stability and oxidation resistance, resulting in longer tool lives with perceptibly fewer tool changes

    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.
    ***Intrinsic stress [GPa] Measured by XRD and/or bending method (Stoney equation). The calculated thermal stress has been substracted.
    ****Max. service temp. [°C] These are approximate values out of the field. Due to thermodynamic laws there is a dependency of pressure in application.
