PV710 / PV720 / PV730

Hybrid cermet

The new hybrid cermet grades are ideal for a wide variety of metal-cutting applications ranging from high-speed to low-speed machining by exceeding conventional materials in both hardness and strength through proprietary material technologies. Kyocera has drawn on its many years of cermet technology development to create these new materials, which offer improved abrasion resistance, better fracture resistance and better surface finish quality than conventional steel-cutting tools.

Grades PV710 / PV720 / PV730 improve performance by composite lamination of MEGACOAT NANO and special TiN coating to combine high adhesion resistance and great visibility of the used cutting edge even in dim light.



  • Long tool life during high speed and continuous machining.
  • High speed/continuous machining
