HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. -- March 3, 2014

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation, Cutting Tool Division today
introduced its new MFH-Raptor High Feed Milling Cutter, which features an
anti-vibration design for increased productivity in ramping and helical
milling at high speeds.

The MFH-Raptor offers a variety of cutting options with three different
inserts designed specifically to enhance general milling; to support large
depth-of-cut operations (up to 5mm), and to provide a wiper edge for roughing
and finishing, even in low-horsepower machining centers. This state-of-the-art
cutting tool offers a convex helical edge design to reduce cutting forces
during initial workpiece contact. The MFH-Raptor is ideal for a wide
application range including face milling and shouldering, slotting, ramping,
helical milling and plunging.

The MFH-Raptor is Kyocera’s first high-feed milling tool, and is being
introduced in response to heavy market demand. It rounds out Kyocera’s
comprehensive product line of cutting tools to meet diverse manufacturing
challenges. Inserts for the MFH-Raptor come in new grades for difficult-to-cut
materials, providing stability to help prevent insert fracturing and ensure
high-efficiency machining.

  *The CA6535 insert is ideal for Ni-base heat-resistant alloys and
    martensitic stainless steel. It provides high heat- and wear-resistance
    with improved stability through the use of Kyocera’s thin-film CVD*
    coating technology.
  *The PR1535 insert is ideal for titanium alloys and precipitation-hardened
    stainless steel. Kyocera’s proprietary MEGACOAT NANO coating technology
    gives these inserts improved stability and longer tool life in milling
  *The MFH Face Mill and Endmill both offer coolant holes for use in
    machining high-temperature alloys or improving surface roughness.

The MFH-Raptor, including its three insert chipbreaker designs, is currently
available at special pricing through a limited-time kit promotion.
