Tungaloy America’s CVD-coated T9100 steel turning series features a “PremiumTec” coating, which is a special surface technology that gives the insert a highly polished cutting surface. This surface adds greater lubricity, which reduces adhesion and improves chip flow, the company says. In addition, the company’s pre-coat bonding technology increases tool life.
Two featured grades include the T9125 for general-purpose turning and the T9115 for semi-rough and finish high speed turning. The T9100 series is available in TSF, TM, AR, S, TH and PS chip breakers.
Can 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.
