KYOCERA Introduces New Cutting Tool Inserts for Cast Iron Applications

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation, Cutting Tool Division today announced its new CA4505 and CA4515 CVD coated carbide grades of indexable cutting tool inserts for machining gray and nodular (ductile) cast iron. Featuring Kyocera’s new Bright Black (BB) coating technology, the CA45-series offers superior resistance to premature insert wear and fractures.

There are several key advantages of the Bright Black CVD coated CA45-series, including:

  1. Improved CVD coating adhesion provides enhanced anti-peeling performance through optimal layer composition consisting of an ultra-fine TiCN layer, an alpha-alumina layer and Kyocera’s proprietary, special-surface top layer.
  2. The special-surface top layer treatment reduces material build-up on the insert cutting edge and improves surface finishes on the workpiece, while reducing insert chipping during the machining process.

The two new grades cover a wide variety of applications pertaining to the machining of gray and nodular cast iron:

  • CA4505 -- excellent wear resistance for continuous machining
  • CA4515 – ideal for continuous or interrupted general-purpose machining

The CA45-series inserts will be introduced through a special sales promotion featuring Kyocera’s new Double-clamp Toolholders, the ideal partner for CA45-series inserts: buy 20 CA45-series inserts and receive a Double-clamp Toolholder free of charge. This combination of insert reliability and rigid clamping will further enable Kyocera Cutting Tools to provide superior and dependable tool life and performance in multiple cast iron applications.
