Following its success in Hannover two years ago, Kyocera - one of the world's leading suppliers of fine ceramic components for the technology industry - is back at EMO Hannover 2019, the world's premier trade fair for the metalworking sector. Once again, the company is bringing with it a wide range of new cutting tools for industrial machining and production operations. These top-level innovations include the PVD-coated carbide grade PR1725, the SIGC internal grooving tool for small diameters, a new MEV tangential milling cutter and, taking center stage, the new CVD-coated CERMET grade CCX.
The CCX is a cermet for finishing that supports cutting speeds of up to 800 meters a minute, resulting in short process times that fully satisfy today's market needs. Other problems typically associated with high-speed machining, such as thermal diffusion and abrasion due to oxidation, can be contained by using the new CCX grade. Its combination of ultra-fine-grained cermet and a very thick CVD coating ensures excellent resilience during machining. According to its developers, further benefits of this innovative product include increased productivity and outstanding abrasion resistance for various steel types and cast iron.
Visitors can experience the performance capabilities of Kyocera SGS products for themselves in live demonstrations at the fair, where a GROB 5-axis universal machining center is machining various components and challenging materials.
