New BIDEMICS JX3 – An Industry Changer
NTK’s BIDEMICS is an industry changing material available in JX1, JP2, and New JX3 with its increased toughness. These grades effectively machine Heat Resistant Super Alloy (HRSA) materials like Inconel 718 and Rene 65 at speeds of 1600 SFM, increasing productivity for partsmanufacturers. When JX1 and JX3 grades are run at typical whisker ceramic speeds customers easily achieve double the tool life over whisker grades but, BIDEMICS’ excellence shines-through at increased speeds. For finishing operations, BIDEMICS achieve 10-15 times higher speed capability over carbides and better wear and notch resistance than CBN’s.
New SX3 – Machine Rene’s & Waspaloy
NTK’s SiAlON grade, SX3, exhibits the ideal combination of wear resistance and toughness for cutting Heat Resistant Super Alloys (HRSA). Machine the newest generation of HRSA work materials, like Rene and Waspaloy, as well as today’s most common materials (Inconel 718) with confidence. SX3 grade is effective at roughing and semi-finishing operations for turning and milling applications, using RCGX, RNG, RPGX,SNG, SNGX geometries. Its superior strength is apparent with the insert’s boundary wear resistance resulting in longer tool life, compared to competitor’s grades.
Ceramic End Mills for HRSA and Cast-Iron Machining
NTK Cutting Tools’ new Solid Ceramic End Mills have proven results of up to 20 x higher productivity compared to carbide end mills when machining HRSA materials, such as Inconel 718. NEWLY released 4, 6, and 8 flute end mills incorporate specific edge designs capable of machining cast iron parts with superior results. The extreme performance is achieved with combined characteristics of durability from the SX9 ceramic grade and toughness built into the unique flute edge design for excellent chipping resistance and long tool life. The end mill’s balance of toughness and wear resistance enables them to machine even the most demanding applications.
NEW ST4 Grade Carbide Inserts
ST4, a new super tough PVD coated carbide grade released by NTK Cutting Tools. The thick CrAlN coating provides high hardness and oxidation resistance solving issues related to machining materials like 304SS, 17-4PH, and Nitinol. High speed machining applications with ST4 inserts have proven results with stable machining, excellent surface finishes, and extended tool life. This super tough coating combined with NTK’s top of the line chip-breakers for front turning, back turning, grooving, cut-off, and ID turning will exceed your machining expectations.
Remarkable Results with our Carbide End Mill
NTK’s S-Mill Series carbide end mills, the latest addition to our quality selection of Swiss Tools. The sharpness of these end mills reduces the occurrence of burrs, produces remarkable surface finish, and improves tool life to outperform the competition. S-Mills are available in 2, 3, and 4 flute designs with a range of diameters to cover a wide variety of applications (2 flute available in a 2mm dia.) and in 40, 45, and 50mm lengths that are ideal for automatic lathes. The AC3 (TiACrN -TiAlN coated) carbide grade is ideal for side milling, slotting, and profiling in steel and stainless-steel materials
TFX Series – Up to .197” (5mm) DOC
NTK Cutting Tools developed the TFX front turning carbide inserts (wiper style available) for Swiss CNC applications, capable of machining large depths of cut in a single pass (up to 0.197”). The inserts incorporate a special chip-breaker with a sharp cutting edge to provide excellent chip control and surface finishes. TFX inserts are available in DM4 (for titanium, cobalt chrome, heat resistant alloys and stainless steels) and New ST4 (best for machining 304, 17-4PH, and Nitinol). The corresponding TFT series holders have rigid side screw clamping to ensure stable turning by preventing movement of the insert from z-directional cutting forces. Pair the TFX inserts with a coolant through holder (TFT...-OH2) to improve chip evacuation, surface finish, part tolerance, and tool life. The -OH2 style holders are compatible with new coolant through gangs (on Citizen L20 & D25 CNC machines.)
