SP9Roughing to finishing of Ductile Cast Iron & Gray Cast Iron| Coated Silicon Nitride Ceramic

Covers Roughing to Finishing operations

An extremely tough material and CVD coating combines to achieve excellent fracture and wear resistance

Achieve Long tool life even at a low cutting speed range (Vc = 300m/min) due to the CVD coating
