Therefore, we have developed a new material “BIDEMICS” having high-strength and high-hardness. With this tool, you can process superalloy 2 to 15 times faster than conventional tools.

In this selection, originality of this tool is highly valued. We have developed new material with fine ceramics technology, which is our core technology, high efficiency of cutting superalloy and high cost performance. Moreover, most major aircraft engine manufacturers already have begun to use this tool, and highly valued as this tool meets industry expectation.
