EMO Hannover 2017, the world's leading trade fair for machine tools, is playing host to the ceramics specialist Kyocera Corporation, which has brought with it a variety of cutting tools for industrial machining and production applications. Among the innovations are new grades for super heat-resistant alloys, new milling cutters, new indexable drills and additional precision tools for companies in the automotive, aviation, aerospace and medical technology sectors, as well as their suppliers.
Also on show in Hannover are chipbreakers for the turning tools used to machine metals containing super heat-resistant alloys. A newly developed substrate enhances the toughness of the indexable inserts, prevents notch-wear and therefore ensures stable machining processes. The new substrate is applied using Kyocera's Megacoat hard PVD coating technology, which is extremely hard and exhibits excellent heat resistance. Further innovative products on show include the new hybrid MFAH milling cutter, PCD inserts for machining aluminum, the MagicDrill DRV and MagicDrill DRA indexable drills and the new MFPN66 face mill cutter.
