KENNAMETAL has introduced a new ceramic turning grade, KYHK15B™, designed to deliver increased productivity and lower cost per edge in hard turning operations. According to the developer, the new grade provides greater depth-of-cut capabilities than PcBN inserts when machining hardened steel, high- temperature alloys, and cast iron, as well as maximum tool life and wear resistance for the most demanding turning applications.
“KYHK15B provides excellent edge stability, high chipping resistance, and a PVD gold coating makes wear progression identification very easy. From smooth and varying depths of cut to heavy depths of cut, KYHK15B can be an economic alternative to PcBN inserts,” product manager Robert Keilmann said.
