Novametal Pro DIA successful at Cosworth

The world famous engine maker Cosworth uses the PCD tipped saw blade Novametal Pro DIA to cut aluminiumq_with a 14% silicone content. The material is solid and round, 3¾" in diameter and used for pistons. The pistons are used in racing car and Cessna type light aircraft engines.

The material is cut on a Kaltenbach machine. Previous tests with TCT saw blades have not been successful. Our distributor, Thames Valley Saw Service Ltd. approached Cosworth and suggested they cut the material with the Novametal Pro DIA saw blade, which was released at EMO 2007.

The saw blade used is 400 mm in diameter; the kerf is 2.6 mm and tipped with 50 PCD teeth. The saw blade is to be used only once. This ensures the highest process quality blade after blade, cut after cut. The very small PCD tip is fused in a process developed by Kanefusa, onto a tungsten carbide substrate, which has a chip breaker. This gives a good chip curl leading to an excellent cut finish.

Cosworth appreciates the good surface cut quality, which reduces machining after cutting, material savings due to a thin kerf and a longer tool life.

New Year Greetings

On behalf of Kanefusa, I am very grateful for the kindness that you showed us last year. For all of us, it was a successful and pleasing year; we have received a lot new family members, such as dealers, customers and users of Kanefusa products from all over the world. We will not only respond to potential demands of our customers, but also be a pioneer company in the cutting tool market by developing advanced processing systems and releasing new products and sophisticated technologies.

Although it is less than 10 years ago that we expanded our marketing, production and overseas business it is still our challenge to increase these activities globally. For that, it is planed to plough back more investments into the Indonesia plant, Chinese plant and Head OfficeqE plant now and the future. Our goal in 2008 is to generate 35% of an annual turn over in markets outside Japan.

One of my favorite saying is q‡Youth is in your mind. As long as you filled your life up with hope and courage everyday, you will always be in the bloom of youth.qEKanefusa celebrates its 60th anniversary this year and like this saying goes the company keeps always its youth and will be even more dynamic in 2008. I hope that 2008 will be special and fruitful year for all members of our Kanefusa family. Once again thank you very much and may the New Year turn out to be the happiest and best for you.
