KCS10B can be used in all kinds of the most common turning toolAnchor icon shapes, sizes and chip breaking groove types. It can be used to cut nickel, cobalt, iron base and other superalloys in aerospace and other fields.

KCS10B has a revolutionary coating, which is attached to the ultra-fine grained cemented carbide substrate. Its coating adhesion is very excellent. When machining superalloy, the tool life can be extended by up to 50%, and it can provide more stable and controllable processing process and higher productivity.

KCS10B overcomes the two most common wear modes in turning superalloys: Crater wear and deep cutting wear, which often lead to unexpected or even catastrophic tool failure.

KCS10B has a revolutionary coating, which is attached to the ultra-fine grained cemented carbide substrate. Its coating adhesion is very excellent. When machining superalloy, the tool life can be extended by up to 50%, and it can provide more stable and controllable processing process and higher productivity. Kcs10b overcomes the two most common wear modes in turning superalloy: crater wear and deep cut wear, which often lead to unexpected or even catastrophic tool failure.

Special sputtering process

  • The key to the success of kcs10b is the high power pulsed magnetron sputtering (high PIMS). In the traditional PVD coating process, small raindrops like AlTiN will fall on the tool.
  • The high power meter PIMS produces not small raindrops, but a fine layer of AlTiN fog, which falls on the tool to form a series of extremely thin, smooth and wear-resistant coatings.

Less wear

High-temperature alloys such as Inconel 718 and WCCo 31 are a headache due to rapid tool wear and unpredictable tool life. Kcs10b has been proven to reduce deep cut wear and extend tool life from 3 minutes to more than 5 minutes in roughing applications. Tool life in finishing applications performs better, with visible crater wear and subsequent tool failures typically delayed two or three times compared to competitors.

The positive and negative inserts, as well as various chip forming, edge treatment and chip breaking groove types, make kcs10b an ideal solution for turning iron-based (S1), cobalt-based (S2) or nickel-based (S3) superalloys.

KCS10B tool life reference

Chromium nickel-iron alloy 718 (NiCr19FeNbMo-DIN), 36-39 HRC, continuous turning, external cooling; Cutting parameters: 61m / min (200sfm), 0,25 mm / RPM (0.0096 IPR), 1,5 mm doc (0.06 IPR).

Due to the super-smooth coating and special edge treatment of KCS10B, the deep cutting wear and crater wear are easier to control; In addition to smoother surfaces, the new coating process allows us to create sharper blades.

The advanced honing and edge treatment process reduces the friction that causes heating, thus further improving the tool life, which also means less chip buildup, which is another common failure mode in superalloy materials.
