Cermet inserts

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.

Uncoated cermet for high speed / continuous machining and general use.

  • TN610: Higher wear resistance during continuous and finish machining. High quality / High precision machining
  • TN620: General use for quality surface finishes with balanced wear and fracture resistance

Grades PV710 / PV720 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.

  • PV710: Long tool life during high speed and continuous machining
  • PV720: High efficiency machining and superior surface finish



Cermet inserts

Kyocera cermet is a composite material that combines ceramic and metallic materials. The metal is used as a binder for carbide. Typically, metals such as nickel and cobalt are used.

PVD-coated cermet has high abrasion resistance and fracture resistance thanks to the use of the PVD coating technology (Physical Vapor Deposition) on a basis material of micro-grain carbide.


Features of cermet inserts

Cermet grades provide long tool life and excellent surface finish, combining toughness with superior wear resistance.


Due to Kyocera’s MEGACOAT technology, PVD-coated cermet offers less deterioration and more bending strength.


This enables you to choose the perfect tool fitting your demand for high-performance cutting.


Kyocera – one of the world’s leading manufacturers of cermet

Kyocera has more than 30 years of experience with cermet and offers one of the largest product ranges on the market.
