PCBN Cutting Tool

Polycrystalline Cubic Boron Nitride (PCBN) is superhard material whose hardness is only second to diamond. PCBN is superior in hard machining of ferrous material such as grey and hard cast irons, sintered materials, tool steels, or other hardened steels (above 40 HRc). PCBN cutting tool is a cost effective solution to grinding that is widely accepted in the industry. Inserts is the most common type of PCBN cutting tool. However, special PCBN boring tool is more suitable for micro-machining of hardened steels. PCBN can be made for reaming and milling applications. Halcyon can engineer PCBN tools for your need.
