NTK, a world leader in the design and manufacturing of advanced cutting tool inserts, carries a selection in BIDEMICS, Ceramic, Cermet, Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN), Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD), and Micro-Grain Carbide grades. In addition, we produce a comprehensive line of holders and cutters for traditional and Swiss type machines. Industries we service include: aerospace, automotive, energy, medical, oil & gas, steel, and transportation. BIDEMICS – An industry changing composite cutting tool material which effectively machines Heat Resistant Super Alloy (HRSA) materials. Parts manufacturers experience increased machining capacity, without a need for investing in new machinery, by simply using JX1 and JP2 grade inserts at the optimal parameters for their specific application (up to 1600 SFM). BIDEMICS has a proven record of wear resistance exceeding the tool life of the competition, as well as its ability to provide excellent surface finishes on HRSA aerospace components.
High Feed Aluminum Cutter - An impressive line of High Feed Cutters (HFC) for milling aluminum. This series maximizes teeth/cutter, from 7 teeth on the 50mm diameter cutter to 22 teeth on a 125mm diameter cutter, to reduce production time. The lightweight construction allows more customers to utilize this product (the 125mm cutter weighs only 2.4lbs) and obtain speeds up to 20,000rpm. The coolant through mounting bolt provides excellent chip evacuation. Groove Duo Modular Holders - NTK's 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. Socket Machining for Swiss Lathes - Shaper Duo tools to create 6-lobe, Hexagonal, and square 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, hexagonal inserts AF range from 1.4mm (on smallest bar) up to 12.2mm (on largest bar).
