Kyocera Coated Carbide Inserts Cut Steel
Kyocera Precision Tools expands its CA025P CVD-coated carbide series for steel turning to include positive insert styles. This series features multilayer CVD coatings with a layer using a thick film of aluminum oxide for heat resistance. Utilizing cemented carbide as a base material is said to ensure fracture resistance, long-term performance and longer tool life. These cutting tools can accommodate a range of machining applications from roughing to finishing by using a variety of chipbreakers. The company aims to reduce the frequency of insert replacements and improve production yield.
Here's a broad look at different ways to approach workholding, from bar feeders to collet chucks to robotics.
The rapidly increasing demand for high-value threaded parts with exceptionally high length-to-diameter ratios has created a lot of interest in thread whirling technology among American shops and manufacturers.
Sometimes a shop doesn’t do enough turning work to justify the purchase of a CNC lathe. But when it needs to produce precision turned parts, even if for a very small lot size, the shop needs a solution.
