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.

  • High process reliability
  • Suitable for very fine surface structures
  • Post-machining treatments not required
  • Long tool lifetimes

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.
