CA3 Image

NEW K-SERIES CHIPBREAKERS

3 new chipbreakers with improved chipping resistance for a large range of heavy cast iron operations.

High Coating Adhesion Results in Stable Machining

 

Strong Intra-coating Adhesion

With a micro intra-coating structure higher adhesion is possible by increasing the bonding surface with aluminum oxide layer.

The impact-resistant intra-coating structure interface strength is increased by 20% (compared to our other products), which resists boundary destruction.

Rake Face Condition

Cutting Conditions : Vc = 490sfm, D.O.C. = 0.059", f = 0.012ipr, Wet, CNMG432 type, Facing, (After withstanding 3,000 Impacts), Workpiece: 100-70-03 (8 Grooves in Workpiece)

Micro TiCN Coating Provides Excellent Wear Resistance

CA3-Series Grades

3 Grades for Various Cast Iron Machining Applications

CA310 Gray Cast Iron (1st Recommendation)

Grade for high-speed continuous machining and improved tool life through the deposition of a thickened alumina coating layer.

For finishing to roughing of gray cast iron.

Wear Resistance Comparison

Cutting Conditions : Vc = 980sfm, D.O.C. = 0.059", f = 0.012ipr, Wet, CNMG432 type, Workpiece: 100-70-03




 

CA315 Nodular Cast Iron (1st Recommendation)

For continuous to interrupted machining with a good balance of wear resistance and stability.

Excellent performance for machining gray and nodular cast iron by optimizing the total coating layer thickness.

High efficiency and long tool life.

Fracture Resistance Comparison 2

Cutting Conditions : Vc = 660sfm, D.O.C. = 0.059", f = 0.018ipr, Wet, CNMG432 type, Workpiece: 100-70-03 (8 Grooves in Workpiece), Interruption Evaluation: 2 Times




 

CA320 Interrupted Machining

Improved stability with CVD layer structure with high adhesion.

Long tool life for nodular cast iron during heavily interrupted or high-speed machining.

Rake Face Condition

Cutting Conditions : Vc = 490sfm, D.O.C. = 0.059", f = 0.012ipr, Wet, CNMG432 type, Workpiece: 100-70-03 (8 Grooves in Workpiece), Interruption Evaluation: 2 Times
