Due to the large cutting force and high cutting temperature during the processing of stainless steel parts, the tool material should be selected as high strength and good thermal conductivity as possible YW or YG cemented carbide. YT14 and YT15 carbide inserts can also be used for finishing.
Stainless steel parts processing manufacturers tell you that ceramic material tools can be used for batch processing of the above-mentioned material parts. Because this type of material is mainly characterized by high toughness and serious work hardening, the chips from cutting these materials are generated in the form of unit chips, which will cause the tools to produce Vibration can easily cause micro-chips on the cutting edge. Therefore, the first thing to consider when choosing a ceramic tool to cut parts of this type of material is the micro-toughness.
Stainless steel parts processing manufacturers tell you that for the processing of hardened parts of this type of material, CBN (cubic boron nitride) blades can be used. The hardness of CBN is second only to diamond, and the hardness can reach 7000~8000HV, so the wear resistance is very high. In comparison, the outstanding advantage of CBN is that the heat resistance is much higher than that of diamond, which can reach 1200℃ and can withstand very high cutting temperatures. In addition, its chemical inertness is very large, and it does not play a chemical role with iron group metals at 1200~1300℃, so it is very suitable for processing stainless steel materials. The tool life is dozens of times that of cemented carbide or ceramic tools.
