Kyocera has added a new type to its EZ Bar tooling series suitable for inner diameter (ID) work. The EZBF can make a one-shot boring process making a 90-degree step, the company says. This means that a wide variety of ID processes is possible, including boring, back turning, grooving, facing and threading, by changing one tool. The EZBF also allows for hole bottom face finishing processes, Kyocera notes.

The EZ Bar can also be combined with the company’s new PR1725 grade, a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coated carbide grade. According to Kyocera, this can help produce a better surface finish and offer improved wear and adhesion resistance. It can also results in reduced cracking while machining.
