The CTPX710 and the CTPX715 are the first multi-application grades from CERATIZIT. The grades offer outstanding performance when machining steel, stainless steel, super alloys and non-ferrous metals.
The multi-application grades have an AlTiN-based coating which is applied using our legendary Dragonskin coating technology. In order to ensure suitability for such a broad spectrum of applications, the microstructure of the coating has been optimised and a specialised fine grain metal used. In addition, the Dragonskin coating technology makes the surface particularly smooth, which improves chip removal and reduces adhesion, even with materials that are difficult to machine such as titanium or stainless steel.
The multi-application grades are currently available in the form of indexable inserts for turning tools. More applications (milling, grooving, etc.) are set to follow.
