Kyocera showcases a bouquet of new innovations at EMO 2017

8/16/2017
The Japanese advanced ceramics specialist Kyocera will introduce a variety of new cutting tool solutions at this year´s EMO trade fair in Hannover, Germany.

Among the new innovations - new grades for super heat-resistant alloys – PR005S / PR015S for turning are now available. A newly developed substrate improves toughness of the inserts and prevents notch-wear, realizing stable machining. Kyocera’s original PVD coating technology “Megacoat hard” was adopted to these grades, featuring high hardness and excellent heat resistance.

 

Further innovative products include new milling cutter MFAH for aluminium machining with a hybrid body design and PCD inserts.  It performs with less burr, low cutting resistance and high efficiency. A range of 3D-printed cutting tool and tool holder solutions will be presented including chip free PCD reamers for cylinder head water connection holes and vibration damping tool holders. Also on display is the latest multi flute PCD reamer for Valve Body spool bore machining. With up to 8 cutting edges this innovation allows for exceptional fast reaming of high quality bores in cast aluminum parts. Together with special tools like one-shot solutions for cylinder head applications Kyocera is presenting 3D-printed toolholders and special dampener boring toolholders.

New chipbreaker for super heat-resistant alloys – SQ / SX chipbreaker for turning

These new chipbreakers are particularly designed for roughing applications and semi-finishing of super heat-resistant alloy. Conventional tools provoke a short or unstable tool life which results in low productivity and frequent set-up time. High thrust force by popular geometries (R, S types) for roughing, generate vibration and have limited application range. Thus it is difficult to secure machining rigidity for turbine parts for example. The semi-finishing SQ chipbreaker and rough machining SX chipbreaker can solve such problems. The SX chipbreaker has a special nose shape (handed type). A unique axial face design reduces cutting edge temperature which leads to tool life improvement. A negative lead angle of 60° prevents burr and secures enough cutting depth. The SX chipbreaker reduces radial force which prevents chattering and improves productivity. By this the SX chipbreaker can keep high performance even in high speed machining range. The SQ chipbreaker improves tool life and productivity in semi finishing operation.  A special axial face design decreases cutting edge temperature. The inclinated cutting edge is effective to reduce burr and notching.

New MagicDrill DRV (indexable drill) and MagicDrill DRA (drill bit)

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 ideally suited for the automobile, aviation and medical device industries, since they  combine a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) coated insert on the outer edge and a physical vapor deposition (PVD) coated insert on the inner edge. The MagicDrill DRA is a highly efficient drill with aneasily replaceable drill bit, which achieves superb drilling accuracy at a low cutting force. In addition to the line-up of 3D, 5D and 8D a 1.5D version is now available.

New face mill cutter – MFPN66

The MFPN66 is a high efficient face mill cutter with an approach angle of 66°.  The double-sided pentagonal inserts offer 10 cutting edges per insert. It is specially developed for smaller cutting depths and diameters. The main force and feeding force is equal to 45° type cutters but radial force is 40% lower.
