PVD Coated Cermet Inserts are an enhancement to our general turning inserts, designed specifically for high-speed finishing. These inserts allow faster cutting speeds, with less deterioration and wear, than our CVD carbide inserts, during uninterrupted cutting.
The HCP10C coated cermet grade was engineered to provide improved stability in continuous turning applications at high speeds and low depths of cut. Wear resistance has been significantly improved, and crater wear on the rake surface of the insert is largely prevented during continuous machining of carbon steel and alloy steel. The highly lubricative PVD coating layer provides excellent wear resistance and extended tool life.
