Turning Tools

Turning involves a fixed and non-rotating cutter, because in turning, the workpiece spins instead of the tool. Turning tools typically consist of a replaceable insert in a turning tool body. The insert can be distinctive in a number of ways, including shape, material, coating and geometry. The shape can be round to maximize edge strength, diamond-shaped to allow a sharp point to cut fine features, square, or even octagonal to increase the number of separate edges that can be applied as one edge after another wears out. The material is typically carbide, though ceramic, cermet or diamond inserts can be applied to more demanding applications. A variety of protective coatings also help these insert materials cut faster and last longer.

Breaking Chips and Controlling Burrs when Machining Automotive Transmission Components

Chip control is the bane of every shop’s existence and knowing how to consistently break chips and control burrs in ductile steels like SAE 1018, 1020, and 8620 is the holy grail of the tooling industry. When a shop experiences chip control issues, it affects their bottom line either through machine downtime, scrapped or reworked components, lost inventory due to broken tools or even employee injury.
