Kyocera

The technologically advanced coating system of Kyocera's carbide cutting inserts CA5515, CA5525, CA5535, as well as the cutting inserts for stainless steel, CA6515 and CA6525, goes above and beyond anything available in the market today. The extra smooth outer TiN (titanium carbonitride) coating reduces cutting forces, resists adhesion, and prevents sudden fracture. An Al2O3 (aluminum oxide) layer combats crater wear and dissipates heat, leading to longer tool life. The fine columnar TiCN (titanium carbonitride) layer assists in increasing toughness and wear resistance. As a result, these new products offer stable processing of both steel and stainless steel where both continuous cutting and interrupted cutting processes are involved.

Chipbreaker Types:

PS: General purpose with wide application range. More stable due to large contact surface

PT:
Low cutting forces at high feed machining. Land support structure.



Steel-Cutting Grades:

  • CA5515: First choice for continuous to light interrupted high speed cutting of steel. Good wear resistance due to thick AI2O3 film and MTCVD coating. Also applicable for nodular cast iron.
  • CA5525: First choice for interrupted and general cutting of steel. Strong film of AI2O3 with MTCVD TiCN layer provides good wear resistance and edge strength.
  • CA5535: Designed for heavy interrupted cutting and high feed machining of steel. AI2O3 and MTCVD TiCN coating provides a good balance of wear resistance and toughness.
Stainless Steel-Cutting Grades:
  • CA6515: Continuous to light interrupted high speed cutting of stainless steel. Good wear resistance due to thick AI2O3 film and MTCVD coating.
  • CA6525: For interrupted general cutting of stainless steel. Strong AI2O3 film with MTCVD TiCN layer provides good resistance and reduces notching and burrs.
