Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation Key Developments

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation to Introduce TFT Technology Products at the 2014 Vehicle Display Symposium

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation will introduce new TFT technology products at the 2014 Vehicle Display Symposium being held at the University of Michigan Dearborn, October 23-24. Focused on small to medium size TFT-LCDs, Kyocera will showcase its new automotive display products in sizes ranging from 1.8" to 8.0" with many advanced technologies and features. Kyocera's new 1.8" TFT display was developed for HUD applications. This product uses Kyocera's Low-Temperature-Poly-Silicon (LTPS) technology to achieve a high resolution of 480 x 240 in a small form factor. In addition to LTPS, Kyocera is able to incorporate Advanced Wide Viewing (AWV) technology to provide a viewing angle of 170 degrees in both horizontal and vertical directions, and to achieve a high contrast ratio exceeding 1,200:1, enabling Kyocera's display to create a high-quality image on the vehicle windshield. Kyocera's 4.2" TFT features a 272 x 480 resolution, Advanced Wide View (AWV) technology that provides a viewing angle of 170 degrees in both horizontal and vertical directions, eliminating color inversion that occurs with a standard TFT display. The product also has a high contrast ratio of over 1,000:1 and a wide operating temperature range from -30 to 85degC.

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation Introduces MFH-Raptor High Feed Milling Cutter with Anti-Vibration Design

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation 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 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 applications. 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.

Amedica Corporation Signs on Agreement with Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation for Commercial Manufacture of Silicon Nitride Medical Devices

Amedica Corporation announced a collaboration with Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation to manufacture medical devices from Amedica's Silicon Nitride biomaterial at Kyocera's Vancouver, WA facility. As a biomaterial, Silicon Nitride has been shown to help promote bone growth and has anti-infective properties. Devices made from Silicon Nitride are semi-radiolucent with clearly visible boundaries enabling an exact view of intraoperative placement and postoperative fusion assessment via common imaging modalities. Amedica believes that these are essential characteristics that surgeons seek when choosing the ideal spinal interbody implant for their patients.
