Using Ceramic Cutting Tools on Super Alloys Delivers Big Savings
July 1, 2016
Choosing the right cutting tools and techniques when machining super alloys and other difficult materials can dramatically reduce cost-per-part.
As this video from Sandvik Coromant demonstrates, conventional carbide tools generate extreme heat when machining super alloys. As a result, users must reduce spindle speed and feed rates, thus extending cycle times. With the ability to increase speeds and feeds over those of carbide inserts by as much as 30 times, ceramic inserts are the better choice.
