Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corp.’s Cutting Tool Division recently introduced its new PV7025 PVD-coated cermet grade of indexable cutting tool inserts for the general machining of steel. Featuring Kyocera’s new proprietary MEGACOAT PVD coating technology, PV7025 reportedly offers wear and heat resistance, providing superior durability in high-speed machining. When combined with a super micro-grain cermet substrate, the result is a cutting tool material for steel machining.

The tools offer several advantages, including a less chemically reactive material than carbide, thus reducing the tendency for built-up-edge and providing improved surface finishes; the ability to be run wet or dry, allowing reduced coolant costs and easier recycling of metal chips; and a flexural strength equivalent to P15 carbide, reportedly making it capable of a range of cutting depths and federates.
