Kyocera launches solid ball-nose end mill 2KMB

Kyocera has announced the launch of its 2KMB solid ball-nose end mill for high-hardness material processing and micromachining.

Used in the fine machining of precision parts and metallic moulds, this new solid round tool product is now available globally by Kyocera.

2KMB is the second product launch in Kyocera’s K-series solid tool line, which combines new coating technology with a unique shape for the effective micromachining of various high-hardness materials such as alloy tool steel, stainless steel, and high-speed steel.

Kyocera's new wear-resistant coating, "MEGACOAT HARD EX", features a unique two-layer structure to ensure stable processing with high toughness and exceptional chipping resistance.

The wear resistance and chipping resistance both contribute to higher quality and longer tool life. In addition, the newly developed, unique S-shaped cutting edge with outstanding sharpness achieves a high-quality surface finish and maintains wear resistance. KYOCERA strives to improve customers’ productivity with products that optimize performance, economy, and functionality.
