KYOCERA Introduces New Milling Cutters For CNC Machining Featuring Inserts with Proprietary MEGACOAT NANO Technology

New M-Four and M-Six Milling Cutters offer performance advantages and long life


Hendersonville, North Carolina -- October 11, 2012 -- Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation, Cutting Tool Division recently introduced its new MEW M-Four and MFWN M-Six Milling Cutters, both featuring unique advantages and inserts with MEGACOAT NANO, Kyocera’s new proprietary coating technology for stable cutting and extended tool life.

The M-Four Endmills feature negative inserts that utilize Kyocera’s unique insert-forming technology which reduces cutting forces to levels equivalent to positive inserts. The double-sided, four-edge inserts offer low cutting forces for reduced chatter, improved surface finishes, and minimized vibration. The 90-degree cutting angle features an obtuse edge for increased cutting edge toughness. The M-Four lineup offers three newly developed chipbreakers to cover a wide range of applications.

The M-Six Shell Mill features a double-sided, six-edge, extra-thick insert with tough cutting edges and sharp cutting performance. The thick-edge design of the M-Six insert also produces reduced chattering and superior fracture resistance. The M-Six features neutral inserts applicable for shouldering, plunging, and facing, and four different chipbreakers to cover a variety of applications.

Both the M-Four and M-Six Milling Cutters feature MEGACOAT NANO, Kyocera’s proprietary multi-layered coating technology that enables stable milling and extends tool life by reducing wear and fracture with its high hardness and superior oxidation resistance.

Kyocera’s new M-Four and M-Six Milling Cutters are being introduced via kit-style promotions featuring a cutter and 10 MEGACOAT NANO inserts of the customers’ choice.
