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.
