KYOCERA is known as the leading manufacturer of cermets. Cermet is composed of the words Ceramic and Metal. Typical materials used in cermets are TiC, TiN, TiCN and NbC. Designed to provide long tool life and excellent surface finishes, cermets combine toughness with superior wear resistance.
PVD Coated Cermet is coated on cermet substrate with a thin layer of high wear resistance and high adhesion resistance by PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) technology. Generally because of the low processing temperature of PVD compared with CVD, PVD Coated Cermet features less deterioration and more bending strength.
CVD Coated Carbide
KYOCERA’s CVD coated carbide grades are based on ceramic thin film technology and provide stable, efficient cutting at high speeds or heavy interrupted applications.

Due to its superior mechanical properties carbide is used in a variety of applications. KYOCERA produces a variety of carbides, including KW10 for non-ferrous materials and micro-grain carbides for precision cutting.
PW30, KW10, GW15, GW25, SW05
Ceramic inserts are capable of running at high speeds, thus reducing expensive machining time. Hard turning of 38HRC to 64HRC hardened steel, or rough to finished turning of cast iron are recommended applications for ceramic inserts. KYOCERA’s ceramic grades are designed to resist oxidation and maintain hardness at high temperatures.
