Greenleaf Corporation, headquartered in Saegertown, Pennsylvania, USA, a leading developer of cutting tool technology, has announced that its new XSYTIN™-1 phase-toughened ceramic insert grade is now available to complement its range of ceramic insert cutting tools.

The company specialises in the manufacturing of high-performance tungsten carbide and ceramic inserts as well as innovative tool-holding systems. XSYTIN™-1 is engineered by Greenleaf to machine more materials than any other ceramic grade in the industry today. It is designed to mill, turn and groove even the most difficult materials on the market at extreme feed rates with the high surface footage of ceramic inserts, stated Greenleaf.

XSYTIN™-1 is the strongest ceramic insert grade ever produced by Greenleaf, and is stated to be ideal for use in interrupted cuts, removal of scale, roughing, semi-finish and finish cuts in HRSA materials, cast irons, nodular irons, ductile irons, steel alloys and stainless steels.
