Kyocera is much more than ceramics
Kyocera's Cutting Tool Division is the market leader in Japan and a leading supplier of high-quality tooling solutions in North America. Kyocera manufactures a diversified product line of turning, milling and drilling products. Our indexable inserts are manufactured to the highest quality standards in both Japan and the U.S.A and include coated and uncoated carbide, cermet, ceramic, CBN and PCD. Kyocera's continuous investment and focus on R&D has resulted in market beating products such as our innovative CVD coated CA55-series for steel and CA65-series for stainless steel, our high performance MEC endmills and facemills, our highly acclaimed MSR heavy cutter and most recently our new line of coated CBN, just to name a few. The Cutting Tool Division of Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation is headquartered in Mountain Home, NC where we manufacture and operate our Technical Center from which we provide training and technical services both on location and on-the-road at our customer's facilities. Kyocera provides high quality and innovative cutting tool solutions guaranteed to improve productivity at the spindle.
CVD Coated Carbide for machining steel. Special coating layer composition allows for higher speeds and increased efficiency.
CVD coated carbide grades for stainless steel. Advantages include minimized notching, burr prevention and reduced edge build-up and adhesion.
The MEC-series cutters are designed to offer higher productivity. The unique design lowers cutting forces, withstands heavier cuts and allows for increased feedrates. A silver coating and larger chip pocket radius protect the tool. There are seven insert radii, 0.008", 0.016", 0.031", 0.047", 0.", 0.079", and 0.122" available in cast iron, steel, and stainless steel grades.
The new MECH Helical Endmill is the best solution for eliminating heavy milling problems. Advantages include maximized machining efficiency, improved chip evacuation, and reduced cutting force.
Extra fine-pitch increases machining efficiency, lowers cutting forces and is ideal for lower horsepower machines. Available inserts include PR830 for steel, PR905 for cast iron and PR1025 for stainless steel.
Kyocera Consolidates North American Operations
The company has formed a subsidiary to consolidate its cutting tool operations in North America.
High-Feed Milling Cutter Resists Vibration
The MFH-Raptor high-feed milling cutter from Kyocera Industrial Ceramics features a vibration-resistant design for increased productivity in ramping and helical milling at high speeds.
Cermet Cutting Tools Suited for Machining Steel
The PV7025 PVD-coated, cermet grade of indexable cutting tool inserts from Kyocera are designed for general machining of steel.
Coated Carbide Grades for Cast Iron Machining
Kyocera’s CA4505 and CA4515 CVD coated carbide grades of indexable cutting tool inserts are designed for machining gray and nodular (ductile) cast iron.
Cermets Get Assertive
The toughness of this material has improved. Today, the applications for cermet inserts go well beyond finishing.
Small-Diameter Drilling Under Scrutiny
Today's smooth-running high rpm spindles not only allow shops to cut faster with standard tool designs, they also unlock the potential of tiny tools.
Insert Has Built-In Wear Sensor
Kyocera's Sensor Tool turns the insert into its own breakage detection system.
