Kyocera Corporation to Introduce New Cutting Tool Solutions Which Include the 4JER Solid Endmill

Kyocera Corporation has announced that it will introduce new cutting tool solutions which include the 4JER Solid Endmill, an update for the face-milling cutter MFWN, the CA3 Series with a new CVD coated carbide grade and chipbreakers for cast iron machining. The new solid endmill is resistant to breakage and capable of stable slotting and trochoidal machining. Kyocera's original Megacoat Hard coating technology ensures long tool life and stable machining. With improved chatter resistance and variable helix design, the 4JER solid endmill prevents chattering due to its unique four-flute design. Kyocera has updated its face-milling cutter MFWN, a 90° low cutting force cutter for reduced chattering with a max. A. R. of 13°, including neutral inserts for shouldering and facing. The line-up expansion enables highly efficient aluminium machining due to changed geometry and the new grade PDL025. The fine-grain cemented carbide tool grade with DLC coating ensures stable and high quality machining and a long tool life. The new grade is furthermore applicable for turning and cut-off applications. In addition to the MFWN expansion, Kyocera will show a preview of a completely new development for aluminium milling, the MFAH. It offers a new insert geometry with two cutting edges and features an adjustable insert seat pocket. The MFAH is available in two versions, the PCD insert grade KPD001 and the new PDL025 grade. Kyocera's successful high feed cutter series combines several geometries, grades and a toolholder with line-up ranges from 16 mm to 160 mm, which enable a variety of applications. The extra small diameter high feed cutter MFH Micro starts from 8 mm. The low cutting force design ensures high efficiency machining and stable high feed machining in a wide range of cutting parameters. The features, such as a maximum ap = 0.5 mm, offer a cost down solution compared to the application of solid tools. Kyocera's CA3 series features a new CVD coated carbide grade and chipbreakers for cast iron machining. The optimal coating film structure improves shock resistance while the miniaturized composition of the coating layer empowers superior wear resistance. The improved coating interface state furthermore prevents pealing and realizes stable machining in the cast scale. The CA3 series comes in three grade types, which are applicable for various cutting conditions. The new chipbreaker line-up is specialized for cast iron focusing on fracture resistance for wide applications in heavy cutting. Customers can select from the three chipbreaker types of sharpness, continuous and heavy interruption, according to their individual needs. In May 2016, Kyocera acquired SGS Tool Company. Renamed Kyocera SGS Precision Tools, it is a specialist in the production of solid carbide rotary cutting tools for machining difficult to cut materials in the aerospace, medical, offshore and various other industries. The company has introduced a new customer service called Tool4Life. If a customer buys one of the company's Z5 HPR high performance end mills of 10 mm diameter or above, Kyocera SGS Precision Tools will regrind and recoat it free of charge, given that it is not irreparably damaged. To ensure the continuity of production at a customer's factory, a replacement milling cutter can be exchanged for a worn tool within 24 hours. The new Z-Carb HPR 5 Flute Roughing End Mills are tailored for aggressive high speed roughing and finishing of titanium. The specialized five-flute design is engineered for increased productivity over three and four-flute end mills resulting in high metal removal during the machining process.

Institute of Applied Energy Selects KYOCERA to Test ADR System for Improving Electricity Management in Japan

Kyocera Corporation announced that it has been selected by the Institute of Applied Energy (IAE) in Japan for a subsidized project to test an advanced automated demand response (ADR) system featuring high speed and accuracy. The project, which began last month, is part of a larger program commenced by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) this year to promote the development of virtual power plants. With ADR, electricity providers can automatically reduce consumers’ power usage in order to balance supply and demand, thus stabilizing the electricity grid. Kyocera is testing its ADR system as an electricity aggregator (intermediary company between electricity providers and end users) by controlling equipment such as power generators, air-conditioning equipment and storage systems at multiple supermarkets and manufacturing facilities. Kyocera’s goal is to develop a rapid and precise ADR system to help facilitate Japan’s negawatt exchange market planned to open in 2017 where end users can sell the amount of electricity that they have saved based on power-saving requests as negawatts.

Kyocera Corporation Introduces New 5.7” LCD Display for Industrial Applications

Kyocera Corporation introduced a robust 5.7” LCD display with an ultra-thin profile specifically designed for portable industrial devices using the VGA standard. Like consumer electronics, next-generation industrial devices will be smaller, slimmer and lighter; however, industrial applications will still require higher performance and durability in harsh environments. Kyocera’s new ultra-thin, lightweight LCD module is an ideal candidate for handheld devices used in demanding industrial applications, including laboratory testing and measurement, automotive maintenance, medical diagnostics, and marine instrumentation, among others. The new 5.7” TFT-LCD (part number: TCG057VGLAAANN-GN20) features 640 x 480 resolution, slim bezel and an ultra-thin profile with outline dimensions of 127.2mm x 100.4mm x 6mm, and an active display area of 115.2mm x 86.4mm. It provides brightness of 450 cd/m2 with a contrast ratio of 500:1 and viewing angle of 160 degrees vertically and horizontally. It also features a standard LVDS interface, an operating temperature range of -20 to +70°C, storage temperature range of -30 to +80°C, and built-in LED driver circuit. The built-in LED driver circuit incorporates a PWM dimming control, which achieves a wide LED backlight dimming range of 0.1% to 100%. This is particularly useful in meeting equipment design requirements where a highly dimmable display is needed. Having the LED driver circuit built in also helps to simplify the design process and reduce external component requirements. Kyocera’s built-in LED driver ensures a more cost-effective solution.
