Kyocera, one of the world's leading suppliers of fine ceramic components for the technology industry showcased the new cermet CCX grade at EMO Hannover 2019. The grade is equipped to support cutting speeds of up to 800 meters a minute which assists users to achieve shorter process times. Increased productivity along with outstanding abrasion resistance are the core benefits of this product.
Kyocera is a Japanese company headquartered in Kyoto which has made a mark for itself across the manufacturing industry. The company offers superior cutting tools for industrial machining and production applications. Recently, Kyocera exhibited a wide range of solutions at the metalworking technology show EMO Hannover which was recently held in September. However, one of the main products showcased by the firm was its new CVD-coated cermet grade CCX.
CVD-coated cermet grade CCX
The new cermet CCX is claimed to be one of the most efficient grades for finishing in today’s market as it supports cutting speeds of up to 800 meters a minute which leads to shorter process times. The grade comprises a combination of ultra-fine-grained cermet and a very thick CVD coating which ensures excellent resilience during the machining process. A boost in productivity as well as an outstanding abrasion resistance for various steel types and cast iron is also achieved through this newly introduced grade.
In addition to this, certain issues that occur with the process of high-speed machining such as thermal diffusion and abrasion due to oxidation are eliminated with the use of the CVD-coated cermet grade CCX.
Additional product highlights
Apart from the CVD-coated cermet grade CCX, Kyocera displayed numerous innovations such as the PVD-coated carbide grade PR1725 which is based on ceramic thin film technology and are effective for milling, threading, grooving and stainless steel cutting; the SIGC internal grooving tool for small diameters which offers excellent chip evacuation during internal grooving processes; and a new MEV tangential milling cutter which offers an unusual strength at high web thicknesses.
