BIDEMICS

BIDEMICS

NTK's BIDEMICS is the latest revolutionary insert grade to hit the HRSA material machining industry since the release of Whisker ceramics.
BIDEMICS is a patented material with unique physical characteristics that are above and beyond current whisker grades used on HRSA material applications.
The word is spreading through the HRSA industry and around the world about the results achieved when using BIDEMICS.

1Higher Speeds, More Productivity

JX1's Superior Physical Properties compared to Whisker ceramic enable you to increase speeds; potentially as much as 2X Whisker ceramic speeds; increasing productivity and potentially offsetting the need for additional equipment to meet increasing demands.

Chips break easily at higher cutting speeds vs the typically continuous chips of HRSA materials. The result is more efficient chip removal.

2Longer tool life

JX1's combination of High Hardness, Superior Thermal Conductivity and Improved Strength compared to Whisker ceramics results in significantly longer tool life when applied at typical Whisker ceramic speeds, feeds, and depth of cut.

TIPS for JX1
  • JX1 works exceptionally well on Inconel 718 and Inconel 625.
  • JX1 can withstand small interruption, and smooth scale.
  • A slower feed rate at the corner will bring stability.
  • Check the "G-code" for Maximum Rotation Limit when you run higher speed than current parameter.
  • JX1 can provide a big difference in productivity especially when running a 20" or bigger diameter part.

JP2

Ultra High-Speed Finishing of Super Alloys

JP2

Features
  • High speed finish turning can be performed at 800SFM or higher
  • Superior wear resistance compared to CBN's

TIPS for JP2
  • JP2 works very well on Inconel 718 and Inconel 625.
  • E02-honed edge preparation is 1st recommendation.
  • Larger corner-Radius brings toughness, use as large a radius as you can.
  • Check the "G-code" for Maximum Rotation Limit when you run higher speed than current parameter.
