BALIQ ring

The AlTiN-based BALIQ® ALTINOS has a low propensity to stick and is very wear-resistant, even at high operating temperatures. The result: Very high tool thermal stability combined with long service lifetime and thus fewer tool changes. Outstanding surface and cutting edge quality bring significant performance advantages, especially with the very thinnest chips.

The high thermal stability and wear-resistance of the top-tier AlTiN coating are especially beneficial when machining demanding materials. The associated performance gains moreover produce noticeable cost and time savings.

BALIQ® ALTINOS is perfectly suited for applications using indexable inserts and challenging milling and drilling operations.

  • Reliable machining of critical and expensive workpieces
  • Superior performance even for difficult-to-machine materials
  • New manufacturing options

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. Hardness can be adapted to the application.
***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.
