KYOCERA Introduces New MEGACOAT Cermet Cutting Tools in Grade PV7025 for General Machining of Steel

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation, Cutting Tool Division today introduced its new PV7025 PVD-coated cermet grade of indexable cutting tool inserts for general machining of steel.

Featuring Kyocera's new proprietary MEGACOAT PVD* coating technology, PV7025 offers extraordinary wear resistance and heat resistance, providing superior durability in high-speed machining. When combined with a super micro-grain cermet substrate, the result is an exceptional cutting tool material for steel machining.

Kyocera's MEGACOAT Cermet features several key advantages, including:
  •     MEGACOAT Cermets are less chemically reactive than carbide, which reduces the tendency for built-up-edge and provides improved surface finishes.
  •     MEGACOAT Cermets are capable of running wet or dry, allowing reduced coolant costs and easier recycling of metal chips.
  •     Cermet pricing remains stable as compared to the rising cost of tungsten carbide.
  •     PV7025 maintains a Flexural Strength equivalent to P15 Carbide, making it capable of a wide range of cutting depths and feedrates, from continuous roughing to finishing applications.
PV7025 is the most recent addition to Kyocera's MEGACOAT Cermet family. Previously released grades include PV7010 for high-speed finishing of steel and PV7005 for cast iron machining. All three grades are currently available through a special sales promotion featuring introductory prices on popular geometries.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon.
