New Coating Designed To Ramp Up Drilling Performance

New Product From: 6/6/2006 Modern Machine Shop

Balzers, Inc. has added a second member to its G6 family of AlCrN-based coatings, which is offered as an alternative to titanium-based coatings. Balinit Helica is suitable for common steel and cast iron qualities, for internal and external cooling, for dry machining or with minimum quantity lubrication. Potentail product benefits include reduced wear and favorable hot hardness and chip evacuation.


Serving to further enhance performance and promote crack resistance is the multilayer structure of the physical vapour deposition (PVD) coating, which imparts high shear strength. According to the company, this property thus ensures homogenous wear.
