Plus, the…
To prevent insert waste and easily detect wear, the gold-colored TiN outer layer of the Dragonskin multilayer CVD Ti(C,N)/Al2O3/TiN coating acts as an indicator. It not only enables users to clearly identify insert wear and index before a breakage, but also prevents sharp cutting edges from going unused and the insert being inadvertently discarded…
The innovative pyramid geometry of the WTX ensures extremely aggressive and precise drilling performance. In fact, the WTX achieves positioning accuracy of 0.03 mm and excellent centering properties. Higher levels of drilling quality, hole tolerance, surface finish, and positioning accuracy increase component quality, to the extent that there is…
Dragonskin is formulated with a combination of state-of-the-art high-performance substrates and the latest coating structures to achieve an extremely hard and durable satin finish. CERATIZIT tooling coated with Dragonskin enables maximum tool life, cutting speeds, and process reliability.
High Dynamic Turning, or HDT for short, from Ceratizit has turned conventional turning methods completely upside down. This new turning technology combined with the dynamic FreeTurn tooling, means that in the future it will be possible to carry out all traditional turning operations such as roughing, finishing, contour turning, face turning and…
Cutting Solutions by CERATIZIT has introduced the MaxiMill 491 milling system, engineered for easier use, more parts per shift, faster changeovers and profiles of exactly 90°. The MaxiMill 491 system offers eight smooth-cutting edges per insert to provide significant increases in production and savings, the company said.
Registration is now open for Ceratizit’s virtual event that runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 30, 2020.

Ceratizit has received an environmental award known as the Prix de l'Environnement 2023 from the Luxembourg industry association FEDIL for the process used to manufacture the carbide grades in the upGRADE family of cutting tools.
More than 40 years ago, the indexable insert drill changed the way machinists make holes. It continues to do so today.
Ceratizit USA Inc. has joined forces with several companies to make ventilators.
Every cutting insert experiences a drop in performance when approaching the end of its life cycle. If this condition goes undetected for any amount of time, part-machining performance, as well as part quality, may have already suffered.
