Tungaloy’s BXA20 series, a new coated cubic boron nitride (cBN) grade for hardened steel, is designed to deliver predictable and long tool life in applications ranging from roughing to finishing, including descaling of case-hardened steel, which usually requires a large stock to be removed. This cBN grade exhibits high wear and fracture resistance in a low to medium cutting speed range, with enhanced tool life in continuous as well as interrupted cuts.
The BXA20 series is available with a built-in wiper for a good surface finish at high feed rates or a chipbreaker for smooth chip control in large stock removal, covering a variety of applications.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
