That should be having two main types, Straight tungsten carbide Alloy tungsten carbide The straight tungsten carbide have more strongly and higher wear resistance.
Material cutting tools
A wide range of grades are available for different applications. Cast alloys provide high abrasion resistance and are thus useful for cutting scaly materials or those with hard inclusions. Tungsten carbide tools are commonly used for machining steels, cast irons and abrasive non-ferrous materials. Cubic carbonitrides concentrated in the cutting edge improve the hot hardness where it is needed. These powdered elements are carefully blended together, pressed into a die under extremely high pressure, and then sintered in an atmospherically controlled furnace. A third compacting method, usually used for large pieces, is isostatic pressing. A new phenomenon was introduced with the development of the cemented carbides, again making higher speeds possible. Another ceramic tool material is silicon nitride which is mainly used for CI. This has higher thermal shock resistance than silicon nitride and is recommended for machining cast irons and nickel based superalloys at intermediate cutting speeds.
The Diamond tool provide good surface finish at high speed with good dimensional accuracy. Coated tips typically have lives 10 times greater than uncoated tips. A second compacting method is the hot pressing of grade powders in graphite dies at the sintering temperature.
The ceramic are used to made of tips and clamped on metal shank of tool. The purpose was to obtain a cutting tool with hot hardness superior to HSS.
Properties of cutting tool materials pdf
There is a wide range of tool materials available for machining operations, and the general classification and use of these materials are of interest here. Applications Medium to coarse WC grain size Medium to coarse WC grain sizes provide the cemented carbides with a superior combination of high hot hardness and toughness. They cannot used in shock and vibration occur because it is brittle. Cemented carbide tools are extremely hard; they can withstand very high-speed cutting operation. Diamond tools give a good surface finish and dimensional accuracy. In the latter case the carbide provides shock resistance and the cBN layer provides very high wear resistance and cutting edge strength. Diamond offers excellent abrasion resistance, low friction coefficient and low thermal expansion. That should be having two main types, Straight tungsten carbide Alloy tungsten carbide The straight tungsten carbide have more strongly and higher wear resistance. Used anywhere good wear resistance is required.
This has higher thermal shock resistance than silicon nitride and is recommended for machining cast irons and nickel based superalloys at intermediate cutting speeds. The difference between powdered and conventional metals is in the method by which they are made.
Previous cutting tool materials, products of molten metallurgy, depended largely upon heat treatment for their properties and these properties could, in turn, be destroyed by further heat temperatures, these products of molten metallurgy failed.
