Aluminum Chromium Nitride Inserts Offer Increased Performance in Steel and Cast Iron
Elk Grove Village, IL - BIG Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. introduces ALCRONA (AlCrN) inserts for finish boring tools to increase productivity in high speed and dry cutting applications.
The new coating outperforms AlTiN coatings because it offers the same hardness at higher temperatures, so cutting speeds can increase with no loss on insert life. This means less cutting time per part, which equals higher productivity and more parts per cutting edge.
