NTK CUTTING TOOLS – Booth# 2407
New SX3 SiAlON Grade A new NTK SiAlON grade with the ideal combination of excellent wear resistance and toughness required for cutting Heat Resistant Super Alloys (HRSA). Machine the newest generation of HRSA work materials, like Rene’s, as well as today’s most common materials, such as Inconel 718, with confidence. SX3 grade is effective for roughing and semi-finishing of turning and milling applications, using RCGX, RNG, RPGX, SNG, SNGX geometries. Its superior strength, compared to competitor’s grades, is apparent with the insert’s boundary wear resistance resulting in longer tool life.
Productivity with NTK Ceramic End Mills
Machining Heat Resistant Super Alloys? NTK Cutting Tools has expanded its successful line of ceramic cutting tool products with a new Solid Ceramic End Mill that produces results of up to 20 X higher productivity running at speeds of up to 3000 SFM. Constructed of our durable SX9 SiAlON grade, the end mills feature a balance of toughness and wear resistance making them suitable for even the most demanding applications. The 4 and 6 flute options, currently available in inch and metric sizes, are designed with excellent edge toughness, less tool pressure, and better chip evacuation. Time to upgrade from carbide to NTK’s ceramic.
Groove Duo Modular Holder NTK Cutting Tools’ new modular system tool-holders have the best rigidity in the industry today. Straight or L-style tool-holder construction for your specific application. Strong clamping and a special wedge design achieves higher accuracy and efficiency without vibrations or distortions. This rigid technology is applied to NTK’s VGW ceramic insert holders along with a line of holders for RCGX/RPGX ceramic inserts ideal for heat resistant alloy and steel mill roll machining.
Hexalobular Socket Machining for Swiss Lathes NTK developed Shaper Duo tools to create 6-lobe sockets faster and simpler. These tools generate less tool pressure than the traditional rotary broach method. Cycle time is greatly reduced due to the efficient machining process. Shaper duo tooling is designed for positioning in the back spindle of Swiss machines. NTK carries a selection of hexalobular insert bars capable of machining T6 up to T30 socket sizes.
