Kyocera Introduces New CA6515 and CA6525 CVD Coated Carbide Cutting Tool Grades for Stainless Steel

Mountain Home, NC – October 10, 2006 – Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation, Cutting Tool Division, is pleased to announce the release of CA6515 and CA6525 CVD Coated Carbide indexable inserts for machining stainless steel.

The advantages of CA6515 and CA6525 are as follows:

  • Minimized Notching
  • Burr Prevention
  • Reduced Edge Build-up and Adhesion

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

Also introduced are the new MS and MU chipbreakers. The MS chipbreaker features a tough cutting edge, positive land and excellent chip control while the MU chipbreaker features low cutting resistance, a large rake angle, reduced notching and burr prevention. CA6515 and CA6525 CVD coated carbide grades with the new MS and MU chipbreakers, as well as other chipbreakers, are offered in a wide variety of geometries.
