SUMITOMO product range includes hard metal, cermet, silicon nitride as well as CBN and PCD cutting tools for turning, milling and drilling applications and a range of blanks for tool manufacturers. The self-developed polycrystalline cutting materials SUMIBORON (CBN) and SUMIDIA (PDK) allow increased productivity of hard and dry machining techniques with reduced environmental impact. The feature of one of the latest CBN products is exceptional: it is the first ever CBN insert with integrated chip breaker. With the XHT drill, SUMITOMO enters the area of gundrills and offers higher productivity than conventional single-lip drills or similar machining concepts.
