CCX

Newly developed unique cermet base material with thick cvd coating. Excellent wear resistance provides long tool life for low carbon steel, general, steel and cast iron machining.

 

Benefits

  • CVD coated cermet for finishing
  • Shows greater strength and wear resistance in a wide range of cutting speeds from general to high speed machining
  • Great chipping resistance with specialized high-strength micro grain substrate and the compressive residual stress of a CVD coating layer
  • High efficiency and long tool life oriented

 

Features

  • Specialized high-strength micro grain cermet including a high metal content binder phase
  • High wear and fracture resistance

 

Applications

  • Long tool life in high speed machining of soft steel and general steel
  • Long tool life for cast iron finishing
