Tungaloy Adds a New Grade for Machining Heat-Resistant Superalloys
Tungaloy has added the PVD-coated AH8015 grade in several geometry types to its MiniForce-Turn series for machining heat-resistant superalloys, steel and stainless steel.
Tungaloy has added the PVD-coated AH8015 grade in several geometry types to its MiniForce-Turn series for machining heat-resistant superalloys, steel and stainless steel. The cutting tool series features a double-sided positive insert and special seat interface for secure insert location.
Intended primarily for machining heat-resistant superalloys, the new grade is said also to exhibit high performance in steel and stainless steel machining with a balanced resistance to wear and chipping. AH8015 is offered in the -TS, -SS, and -TSW styles of chipbreakers on six-cornered WXGU0403 inserts and four-cornered DXGU0703 inserts to provide longer and more predictable tool life.
Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
