Specialty coatings


The dependable characteristics of DATRON high-quality tools are further improved with by several unique material coatings. These specialty coatings provide an improved hardness enabling faster feed rates, and a smoother surface finish.  In addition, these coatings allow for optimized tool wear and increased continuous production times.



Low frictional value and hot hardness

Excellent wear-resistance, thermal shock stability and hot hardness – those are the properties which have been decisively modified, in order to further improve the ALCRONA layer. By optimising the process parameters and modifying the layer structure, the performance profile of the new layer is significantly increased. ALCRONA is the new top all-rounder in chip removal.


X.CEED Coating
Hardness and coating adhesion

Hardness, oxidation-resistance and thermal stability of X.CEED have been optimized for use in hard and high-speed machining. Even for high-strength and hard-to-cut materials, the layer protects against abrasion and adhesion over the entire cutting speed range. The good sliding properties reduce the cutting forces.


ALDURA Coating – ALDURA Coating
Hardness and coating adhesion

The high-performance layer ALDURA has been purposefully developed for VHM shaft milling tools for roughing and finishing hardened steels and hard-to-cut materials. Decisive competitive advantages can be achieved in tool and die construction thanks to the cutting machining of steels with a hardness of > 60 HRC.



Diamond Coating
Hardness and chamical resistance

The unique material properties of multilayer diamond coatings offer considerable performance potential, which can be used for machining graphite as well as carbide and ceramic green compacts. These highly abrasive materials can be machined very efficiently thanks to well constructed CVD diamond layers on carbide.



Why Use DATRON Tools

Quality and Precision "Made in Germany"
Our tools are manufactured on top-of-the-line, fully automatic grinding machines and made from the highest grade of solid carbide available, which results in consistent quality and an excellent price-to-efficiency ratio.

As a manufacturer of high-speed CNC machining centers, cutting technology has always been a primary focus of our research. That's because the design and quality of tooling often determines the efficiency and quality of the machining process.

Using the finest carbide, our tools are specifically optimized for high speed machining. Our tools are available with various cutting lengths, shank diameters, specalty coatings (for extended tool life) and balancing for high speed.
