KYOCERA Announces New Dynamic Bar SDUC Boring Tool
New design concept dramatically improves chip discharge performance, enhances productivity
March 16, 2009Kyocera Corporation (President: Makoto Kawamura) announced that its Cutting Tool Division has developed the Dynamic Bar SDUC, a new boring bar for cylinder bore machining. The product launches on March 21.
With the combination of a new chip pocket design, which optimizes chip evacuation, and a new coolant structure concept, the product significantly improves the chip evacuation ratio and dynamically enhances productivity.
The market release of this product expands the lineup of Kyocera's Dynamic Bar Series for cylinder bore machining, which originally launched on November 21, 2008. The new product is intended to increase customer satisfaction in this market segment.

|Product name||Dynamic Bar SDUC|
|Production base||Yohkaichi Plant, Shiga Prefecture, Japan|
Superior chip evacuation
Typically, the process of boring (machining the inside bore of cylindrical material) is problematic due to the irregular evacuation of machined chips - causing interruptions to the process, chipping of the tool, or scratches on the machined surface. Therefore, improved chip evacuation performance is crucial to ensure greater productivity when machining bores.
The new chip pocket structure and liquid coolant feature enable the Dynamic Bar SDUC to significantly improve the chip evacuation ratio. While Kyocera's conventional boring bar has a chip evacuation ratio below 10 percent, this new product improves that ratio to 95 percent or higher.*

|*||Coolant refers to the liquid used to cool the heat generated by friction between the chip blade and work piece while machining. There are two ways to use coolant: an internal supply-type, in which the coolant hole is placed inside the holder for discharging the coolant, and an external supply-type, in which the coolant is brought into contact with the blade tip using a structure other than the holder.|
