All round turning grade CTPX710 unveiled by Ceratizit

Cutting Solutions by CERATIZIT a product brand of Team Cutting Tools has introduced its latest grade for turning, CTPX710, which is set to reform insert choice for customers. Developed as a multi-application grade utilising new coating technology and new carbide substrate CTPX710 now means one grade can be used across many material groups from super alloys to general steels and non-ferrous materials. The result is reduced tool inventories and simplified toolchanging for machine operators, with just insert geometry changing to suit specific materials, the grade remains the same.

The success of CTPX710 is the unique partnership between the carbide substrate, the latest Dragonskin coating technology, which are then enhanced by a secondary finishing process after coating. The new substrate is a fine-grain carbide with an optimised microstructure that provides a hard, wear resistant base onto which the Dragonskin coating is applied. For CTPX710 inserts the coating thickness has been increased, which provides additional damping/shock absorbing effect to further protect the substrate.  During manufacture, once the coating has been applied, the inserts are then subject to a further finishing process to create the smoothest surface possible surface across the insert geometry and enhance chip flow. It is this combination that enables CTPX710 to be applied across such a diverse range of materials, while delivering improved cutting performance and process security.

“The arrival of CTPX710 means that customers only need one grade of carbide to cover the vast majority of the work they will be undertaking. This is especially important for the large numbers of small to medium sized sub-contract machine shops that take on a diverse range of work, they can now reduce tool inventories in the knowledge that they have an insert grade that will handle all of the materials they may be faced with,” says Adrian Fitts, Business Development Manager, Ceratizit UK & Ireland. “While the all round performance of CTPX710 is unquestionable, we are finding it delivers excellent results when machining stainless steel and duplex and super alloys, and this is of particular interest to many customers in the UK and Ireland.” 

CTPX710 inserts are available in a wide variety of standard ISO insert shapes with three insert geometries available, these being -M34 which is aimed at turning super alloys due to the low cutting forces it generates along with its resistance to built-up edges; For non-ferrous, steels and cast iron there are two available geometries -25P and -25Q, the former having a sharp cutting edge providing good swarf control on softer materials, while the latter features wiper technology to deliver higher feedrates and improved surface finish. As with all tools from the Team Cutting Tools product brands these inserts are available ex-stock with guaranteed next-day delivery before noon when ordered up to 6:30 PM the previous day.
