Ceramics specialist Kyocera plans to demonstrate a range of cutting tools at metalworking event EMO 2019, taking place in Hanover, Germany, from 16-21 September 2019.

This includes the company’s new chemical vapor deposited (CVD) Cermet grade CCX, a physical vapor deposition (PVD) grade (PR1725), the SIGC for small diameters, and a new milling cutter. A GROB 5-axis universal machining center will also be demonstrated at the stand.

Kyocera says that its CCX CVD-coated cermet for finishing allows cutting speeds of up to 800 m/min and incorporates ultra-fine-grained cermet and a very thick CVD coating to improve resilience during machining.

The company’s PR1725 PVD-coated carbide grade is a combination of nano lamination coating Megacoat Nano Plus (PVD) and tough micro-grain carbide and reportedly has improved hardness and robustness, high adhesion resistance and high oxidation resistance.

Kyocera’s SIGC tool has a PR1725 grade insert and new clamping system which helps ensure a firm insert hold with high edge position accuracy to provide machining in the millimeter range. The product assortment includes diameters of 8 mm to 12 mm and cutting widths of 1.0 mm to 3.0 mm.

The MEV is a 90° milling cutter with improved strength at high web thicknesses. In addition, the axial rake angle of maximum 17° ensures a low cutting force, Kyocera says. Using the new technology, various machining processes are possible, such as ramping with positive indexable inserts.
