NTK Cutting Tools is a global supplier of advanced cutting tool materials including: Ceramic, Cermet, Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN), Polycrystalline Diamond (PCD), Micro-grain Carbide, and BIDEMICS. In addition to our inserts, NTK produces a comprehensive line of holders and cutters for traditional and Swiss type machines. Some of the industries serviced include: aerospace, automotive, energy, medical, oil & gas, steel, and transportation.

NTK Cutting Tools is a division of NGK Spark Plugs Co., LTD. established in Japan in 1936. The USA office, located in Wixom Michigan, opened in 1984. NGK/NTK produces sensors and spark plug related products, semiconductor packages, cutting tools, medical products, and industrial components. Our support network includes: area sales engineers, area representatives, and local distribution.

NTK develops innovative new cutting tool materials and products that hold up to our rigid quality standards, no matter where in the world they are made, and have been developed to optimize our customer's production.


 Press Releases

  • 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).                                                Be sure to stop by our booth # 366 to see these and other tooling solutions NTK offers for your manufacturing applications.

  • 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.

    Customers machining components for the aerospace industry such as, LPT Cases in 718 Plus, Turbine disks in Inconel 718 and Rene’s, Spool part in Rene 65, and Shafts have switched to BIDEMICS because of noticeable production increase potentials. Even when maintaining whisker insert parameters, the performance of JX1 & JP2 easily doubles manufacturing output but its excellence shines-through at increased speeds.

    Manufacturers machining Inco 718 Turbine disks with JX1 inserts running at speeds of 1300 SFM, compared to the whisker insert max speed of 650 SFM, have cut the production time in half increasing capacity from 100 to 200 pcs. JP2 runs a finishing operation of Inco 718 at speeds 7 times faster than the conventional carbide inserts (800SFM compared to 120 SFM.)

  • Productivity with NTK Ceramic End Mills
    Constructed of our durable SX9 SiAlON grade in a selection of 4 and 6 flutes , the end mills features a balance of toughness and wear resistance suitable for even the most demanding applications....

  • 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.

  • Optimal Chip Control
    Advanced chip breaker design to control chip evacuation....

  • Our many advancements in 3D molded chip-breaker designs enhance NTK’s Swiss tooling, ensuring optimal chip-control and improving the machining process for superior surface finishes. The newest are: CTP–CX for cut-off operations, GTMH-GX for grooving or side turning, and TBP/TBPA-BM which enables “Single Pass Back Turning” operations.
