Multi-application grades for universal machining

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.

Universal application thanks to innovative coating

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.

Advantages

  • From now on, users wanting to machine different materials only need one grade. This means that you can avoid incorrect applications and improve the clarity of your tool selection.
  • The perfect combination of state-of-the-art high-performance substrates and advanced coating structure achieves high cutting speeds and increased process security.
  •  The AlTiN-based coating gives the tool a very high level of thermal stability, which increases the service life of the indexable insert and is evident in the significant reduction of tool changes.
  • The extremely high layer thickness precision guarantees ultimate precision of shape and dimensional stability in the indexable insert.

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.
