  Ceramic inserts
CX1  CX1 is ultimate silicon-nitride material that has been developed to improve the notch wear of the conventional ceramics wich contain silicon nitride. To reduce notch  wear amount in machining gray cast iron, the binding intergranular phase of sillicon-nitride particles is change to the higher-melting-point compound. This contributes  to high temperature and high pressure sintering, so that the high density can be created. This material doesn't cover only the conventional silicon-nitride ceramics application range, but also appears excellent performance under even-higher-speed machining conditions.
CC1  CC1 is a highly wear-resistant tool that has been formed into microstructure by adding a trace amount of zirconia (ZrO2) to highly pure alumina (Al2O3), the main  component of this tool material.
CC2  This material is well-balanced between wear resistance and fracture resistance, and it works well in wide range of cutting cast iron and the turning of hard  materials.
CC4  Since the finest grain size particle, with high melting point, is composited CC4 improves in both hardness and strength, and it shows superior performance as a  special material for machining high-hardened materials.
  PCBN/PCD inserts
PCBN  This PCBN are formed with special ceramic binder based on CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) particles, and PCBN sintered layer is increasing thickness by carbide base.
 PCBN are high-performance tool materials that have high hardness at room temperature and high temperature and are almost free from chemical reactions against
 the material to be cut.
PCD  PCD consists of a 0.019 inch thick diamond layer, which is inseparably connected to a carbide base. This polycrystaline diamond layer originates at a pressing  operation by bonding of smallest diamond grains. This cutting material also has a very long tool life.
