Kyocera has extended two of its cutting tool ranges, with additional safety characteristics.

The company’s KPK series now features a new insert, blade and a tool block design for rigid, safe and speedy cut-off operations in the fields of steel, stainless steel, cast iron and aluminium. Due to the easy insert replacement, down time is reduced to a minimum, and the firmly secured insert uses three contact surfaces to ensure safe clamping which eliminates chattering completely and makes the cutting-off process a lot safer, Kyocera said.

The MFWN mini series has been extended to incorporate a tool with a smaller diameter than the original MFWN milling cutters. The 90° milling cutter has double-sided six-edge inserts and can work at up to 5 mm cut depth, while the large model can be used at a cutting depth of up to 8 mm. Kyocera said that it can be used for machining materials such as steel, stainless steel, cast iron and exotic materials.
