Tools on display in the booth

CERATIZIT will showcase its broad portfolio of top-quality brands Cutting Solutions by CERATIZIT, KOMET, and WNT. On display will be premium turning tools, indexable and solid carbide milling, indexable and solid carbide drilling, and reamers, among others. For hard materials, CERATIZIT will display a range of solid carbide rods and preforms that satisfy the exacting demands of the modern precision tooling industry. 

Sustainable solutions

Highlights for hard materials include two new sustainable solutions – the Exchangeable Head System (EHS), which offers maximum efficiency and economy with an exchangeable tool connection. The environmentally sound CTS20G end mill blanks incorporate a large concentration of high-quality secondary raw materials into a cutting tool grade and offer superb performance. 

According to Andy Newbery, National Sales Manager for Rods and Wear Parts, “CERATIZIT continues to bring top innovative and quality solutions to the market. Both the EHS and CTS20G are great options for customers who are looking for sustainable and quality without any compromise in performance.”

Innovative Tooling

Cutting tools highlights include the innovative WTX-HFDS solid carbide drill, which is the first four-flute drill on the market. Coated with CERATIZIT’s proprietary Dragonskin coating, this drill achieves new levels of quality, hole tolerance, and positioning accuracy, with low burr formation while entering and exiting the hole. Additional tools include the CTPX710 and the CTPX715, the first multi-application insert grades from CERATIZIT that offer outstanding performance when machining steel, stainless steel, superalloys, and non-ferrous metals. Visitors will also see the KUB Quatron indexable drill, the US-made P007 four-flute end mill, and the five-flute P556, both with Dragonskin coating, MaxiMill 491 indexable milling cutters, FullMax high-performance reamers, and many more.
