Diamond-Tipped Tools Cut Sintered Carbide
IMTS 2018: Horn USA’s CVD-D-tipped tools are designed for drilling, turning and milling carbide in the sintered state, up to a hardness of 2,200 Vickers.
Horn USA’s CVD-D-tipped tools are designed for drilling, turning and milling carbide in the sintered state, ranging to a hardness of 2,200 Vickers.
Depending on the application, the geometrically defined cutting edges range from extremely sharp and rounded to positive and negative chamfers. With application-specific cutting edge optimization, CVD-D diamond can be useful for roughing work or fine finishing.
According to the company, the tools enable accurate profile machining in the micron range. In terms of roughness, polishability and corrosion behavior, the surface structure is reportedly comparable to grinding and eroding processes.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
