KYOCERA Introduces New MEGACOAT Cermet Cutting Tools in Grade PV7025 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.
