Iscar’s Sumo Tec CVD-coated grade IC6025 is designed for machining stainless steel at moderate cutting speeds during stable and unstable cutting conditions. The grade covers the application range of ISO (M20-35), which is used for roughing and interrupted cutting as well as for applications at medium and low cutting speeds. The grade is composed of a cobalt-enriched outer layer substrate with MT TiCN and alpha Al2O3 coating with a special post-coating treatment.
The coating process features a combination of high toughness and deformation resistance. The Sumo Tec MT CVD coating adds toughness, flaking and chipping resistance while providing reliable performance, the company says.
The M3M chipformer has a wide chipbreaking range, making it well-suited for most stainless steel and low-carbon steel applications, the company says.
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.
