Ceramic inserts

Ceramics for high-speed machining

Kyocera ceramic inserts are capable of running at high speeds, thus reducing expensive machining time. Ceramic inserts are recommended for turning of carbon and alloy steels (38-64 Rc) or rough/finish turning of cast iron.

Kyocera’s ceramic inserts are designed to resist oxidation and maintain hardness at elevated temperatures.

 

Features of ceramic inserts

Superior heat resistance enables high-speed machining (aluminium oxide ceramic). Kyocera’s ceramic inserts ensure good surface quality due to low affinity to the workpiece material. Silicon nitride ceramic (KS6000) has improved thermal shock resistance allowing cast iron machining using coolants.

CS7050
Efficient and reliable cast iron machining. Prevents chipping during interrupted cuts. Excellent wear resistance with reduced grain boundary phase.
KS6015
Efficient and reliable cast iron machining. Prevents chipping during scale removal and interrupted cuts. Excellent wear resistance with reduced grain boundary phase.
KS6050
High fracture resistance and wear resistance by reducing the grain boundary phase and high aspect ratio structure of Si3N4.
PT600M
PT600M (Al2O3+TiC + MEGACOAT ) achieves superior tool life for hardened material and cast iron machining due to Kyocera’s original PVD coating technology MEGACOAT.
