ALUMINUM CHROME - AlCr -
FOR HARD MATERIAL COATINGS
Hard material coatings based on aluminum-chromium (AlCr) for better cutting performance and increased service life of the cutting tools
Performance improvement for tools and components through aluminum chromium nitride - AlCrN coatings
Improved oxidation resistance and lower thermal stress on AlCrN coatings increase the performance and service life of tools and components.
Excellent material hardness
High resistance to oxidation
Low coefficient of friction
Reduced thermal load
high thermal conductivity
Excellent hot hardness
Increased wear resistance & cutting speeds
Long service life
Reduction of set-up times
Tool life increase by up to 50% compared to AlTi
Dry cutting applications
Hard and soft spaces
Four times longer tool life
With aluminum-chrome, sophisticated coatings are possible that:
Increase the service life of the tools by two to four times
Enable cutting and milling at high speed with low thermal load
allow a massive reduction in set-up times
a very low roughness, which facilitates chip evacuation and reduces chip build-up on the edges
ensures high and constant dimensional accuracy and surface quality of the machined components
Standard applications are a thing of the past,
unique and outstanding coating results are now in demand.
Tailor-made alloys for specific and demanding applications and
of course also standard sizes in the form of individual offers.
TO MEET THE HIGH MARKET AND CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS
Numerous companies achieve remarkable improvements in the performance of tools and components through the coating materials and auxiliaries optimized by Avaluxe.
With chemically resistant, extremely smooth coating solutions, Avaluxe customers achieve extreme wear resistance with excellent machinability in their applications.
Often, by doping aluminum-chromium with a third element specially developed by Avaluxe, a remarkable improvement in the layer properties is achieved. AlCrX alloys can be customized.
