BALINIT® ALDURA is Oerlikon Balzers’ (Elgin, IL) high-performance coating designed specifically for solid carbide tools used in roughing and finishing of hardened steels. ALDURA coated tools demonstrate extraordinary wear resistance, extreme mechanical strength, and excellent edge durability in the roughing and finishing process. Better cutting conditions, longer service lives, and controlled cutting processes assure enhanced productivity and manufacturing reliability. The dimensional accuracy and surface quality of workpieces are improved so that retouching and reworking become superfluous. Oerlikon Balzers’ will be featuring BALINIT® ALDURA and other products at IMTS 2008.
