The new MFAH milling cutter for aluminium machining with a hybrid body design and PCD inserts.

Ceramics supplier Kyocera plans to showcase a number of new products at machine tooling show EMO 2017 taking place from 8 to 23 September 2017 in Hanover, Germany.

This includes its  SQ and SX chipbreakers designed for roughing applications and semi-finishing of super heat-resistant alloy. The SX chipbreaker has a special nose shape and an axial face design which reduces cutting edge temperature which leads to tool life improvement. A negative lead angle of 60° prevents burrs and secures enough cutting depth. The SQ chipbreaker improves tool life and productivity in semi-finishing operation. A special axial face design decreases cutting edge temperature and the angled cutting edge is effective in reducing burrs and notching.

Other products include the new MFAH milling cutter for aluminium machining with a hybrid body design and PCD inserts. A range of 3D-printed cutting tool and toolholder solutions will also be on show including chip-free PCD reamers for cylinder head water connection holes and vibration damping toolholders.

The newly developed line of indexable modular drills, Magic Drill DRV, to be used mainly for hole drilling in the machine tool business, will also be presented. It is suitable for the automotive, aerospace and medical device industries, since it combines a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) coated insert on the outer edge and a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coated insert on the inner edge.
