NTK Cutting Tools (UK) Limited

A Comprehensive and Advanced Range of High Speed Cutting Tool Solutions

High Speed Machining Of Aerospace Alloys (HRSA)

The use of ceramic, sialon, whisker and now bidemic has transformed the turninig and milling of aerospace alloys such as Inconel 718. Turning speeds up to 10 times that of carbide are common place. We are now able to mill these nickel chrome alloys at speed up to 1,000 m/min reducing cycle times by many hours.

Turning and Grooving


Machining Aerospace Alloys With Bidemics

A whole new category of cutting tool material. The JX1 grade offers cutting speeds up to 500 m/min on aerospace alloys along with increased toughness. The coated JP2 grade has opened up new aerospace applications even allowing for finish turning of aero components.

Solid Ceramic Endmills - Ceramatic Range

The Ceramatic range of solid ceramic endmills can transform the production times in slotting and shoulder milling of aero components.

High Speed Machining Of Cast Iron

New developments in the production of silicon nitride have resulted in very tough and resilient materials. Turning speeds of 1,000 m/min with feed rates up to 0.7 mm/rev has improved the production of components like brake discs, cylinder liners and flywheels beyond anything previously seen. This allied with improved tool life over carbide make it the ideal choice. The milling of cylinders bocks, gearbox casings and turbo housings is equally transformed. Cutting speeds up to 1,000 m/min are common.



Hard Part Machining

NTK Cutting Tools offers multiple solutions for the machining of hard materials. With both a range of mixed ceramic grades like HC2 and HC7, coated grade like ZC7 alongside a comprehensive range of CBN inserts.
