Tungaloy’s AM chipbreaker is designed to increase efficiency in the medium cutting of steel. Sudden chipbreaker fracture and poor chip control can result from increasing speed and feed rates because of increased cutting force generating excessive crater wear. The AM chipbreaker features a “Lift-Ridge” shape to address this effect. The design minimizes the contact area between the chip and the rake surface, reduces the heat generated by chip abrasion, and prevents crater wear from developing. The incline on the cutting edge decreases cutting force even while machining at high speeds and feeds. In addition, optimized chipbreaker width and geometry deliver more stable chip control.
