Manufacturing process of carbide cutting tools

As you now know, cutting tools are tools to cut things to get the desired shape. Cutting tools cut fruits, vegetables and wood in our daily lives, but cutting tools made of MSH materials cut hard materials such as steel.

Now, let’s look at cutting tools, the main material of the industrial world – machine steel.

Manufacturing process of carbide cutting tools

Let’s look at the manufacturing process of carbide.

In addition, the hardness of hard alloy is between the diamond and sapphire, and the weight is about twice as much as iron.

So, how do we cut hard alloys

What is cutting.

According to machining conditions, cast iron turning slices can be selected. The circuit breaker ranges from the sharp cutting edge of the cutting resistance to the cutting edge strength through the crushing machine to cut off the size of the material.

The image on the right shows the cutting edge during the processing. Cutting machined parts and cutting pieces. Cutting edge at the top of the temperature become as high as 800 ° C, and the influence of friction.

Hard alloy grades that can withstand high temperatures are the most successful.

Carbides form different shapes and are most popular. They are called indexable insertions. Indexable blade is used for holders of various shapes and selected according to the shape of the workpiece and the cutting mode.

External supports and internal boring bar produce circular workpieces. The process of using a bracket or boring bar is called turning, and its main feature is the rotation of the workpiece.

A machine for turning is called a lathe.

  1. The milling


The tool in the right photo is a milling cutter. The milling tool can be divided into two categories. One kind is face milling, machining workpiece surface, the other is end milling, milling cutter and so on. The process of using facemills and endmills is called milling operation, and its main feature is tool rotation. A machine for milling is called a milling machine.
