What The Heck is - Nano Super Micro Grain ?

Ok, the obvious answer is its got a smaller metal grain size than super
micro grain or micro grain, but how does that translate to relative
usability as a cutter?
Is it a carbide with greater "toughness" than regular micro grain carbide?
Is it just marketing hype?

Well, I did a search for the term in that document and it doesn't seem to show up anywhere. I'm not fond of Kyocera customer service anyway, although the end mills are decent.

I found the reference on page 13. Its a cermet insert, for some reason i missed that until i reread the poop sheet. Obviously not carbide.

Actually I received information about end mills with that designation. The mfg's site didn't seem to tell me what the real world performance significance would be to me. Hence why I thought it might just be hype.

Ask them for a evaluation sample, worst thing is they say no. Contact your local manufactures rep, they are usually pretty good at giving out samples.
