Tool Systems for Turning with SPK® Cutting Materials
Precision turning of workpieces made of cast iron, steel, hardened steels and other difficult to machine materials requires perfectly designed tool systems. The CeramTec IKS clamping system and its extension with IKS-PRO enables productive machining with process reliability.
CeramTec tool systems are specifically designed for turning with SPK® cutting materials. They provide a reliable system for clamping and machining even under extremely difficult conditions with pulling cuts or cuts with frequent and abrupt load changes.
Five proven clamping types – from notch type, to smooth, to center hole clamping systems – support CeramTec customers in their everyday machining tasks. All clamping systems are designed for maximum productivity in their respective application areas thanks to maximum cutting parameters. Great emphasis was placed on ensuring superior application-specific handling.

Conversion Made Easy – CeramTec “Easy Change” Technology
All CeramTec carrier tool systems can be equipped with the IKS clamping system. Our “Easy Change” technology makes it possible to change from one clamping system to another – even at a later time – without having to replace the base. All you need to do is replace the clamping element or the shim. With “Easy Change” technology it’s just as easy to change from ceramic inserts to CBN inserts. And all standard tool changing systems can be equipped with the CeramTec IKS clamping system, too.
