According to the company, the new CA115P and CA125P coatings have improved wear and fracture resistance and achieve a high level of uniformity in alumina crystal orientation. They also have a titanium carbon nitride layer and a new carbide substrate with greater high-temperature strength, Kyocera said.
CA125P grades can be used in a wide range of machining conditions, from continuous to heavy interrupted machining.
The company has also launches a chipbreaker, i.e. a groove or protrusion in the rake face of a tool insert to divide and control chips generated when turning.
