KYOCERA Introduces “Magic Drill DRV” for High-Speed, High-Efficiency Hole Drilling at Reduced Cost

The Japanese advanced ceramics specialist KYOCERA will introduce a variety of new cutting tool solutions at this year´s EMO trade fair in Hannover, Germany.

Kyoto/London – Among the new innovations, new grades for super heat-resistant alloys, PR005S and PR015S for turning are now available. A newly developed substrate improves toughness of the inserts and prevents notch-wear, realizing stable machining. Kyocera’s original PVD coating technology “MEGACOAT Hard” was adopted for these grades, featuring high hardness and excellent heat resistance.

Green Curtains Combat Summer Heat

With plants acting as Green Curtains along the exterior walls of the company buildings, Kyocera creates a cooler temperature in office spaces and simultaneously lowers climate-damaging CO2 levels

Kyoto/London – Every spring, Kyocera Corporation employees at numerous company locations, in different parts plant Green Curtains at their offices, and in doing so set an example in sustainability and climate protection. In the run up to the hot summer months, the young plants grow to become thick, green curtains of leaves running up the trellises on the exterior walls. The Green Curtains screen the building from the sun’s rays thereby providing shade indoors and thus reducing the reliance on air conditioning which consequently contributes significantly to climate protection.
