The Beyond ISO KYK ceramic inserts are the first choice for high speed, continuous, and lightly interrupted turning applications in grey cast iron. These premium ceramic solutions for continuous cast iron turning applications offer improved fracture toughness.
Advanced silicon nitride ceramic grade, KYK10, proves its productivity on the spindle by cutting significantly more parts per cutting edge. While the 12µm CVD Alumina Coating KYK25 shows higher speed capability than competitive ceramics for ductile iron machining.
By combining KYK10 and CVD coated KYK25
with Kennametal’s other ceramic grades for cast iron materials, Kennametal provides a complete, high-performance ceramic portfolio that can be optimised to reduce machining cycle times and lower overall manufacturing costs.
KYK ceramic inserts are the first choice for high speed, continuous, and lightly interrupted turning applications in cast iron materials. Benefits include improved fracture toughness, better wear resistance, and extended application range.
Combining KYK10™ and CVD-coated KYK25™ with our other ceramic grades for cast iron, Kennametal provides a complete ceramic portfolio that can reduce machining cycle times and lower manufacturing costs.
Not only is this "best-in-class" ceramic the toughest for cast iron turning and cast iron milling, globally -- due to specialized processing, it's composition cannot be mirrored.
Pure silicon nitride grades are composed of flexible ceramic, which offers superior thermal shock resistance and increased toughness/strength.
Consider silicon nitride a reliable, trustworthy and versatile ceramic for both old and new machines, unstable conditions, and interrupted cuts.
