|Polycrystalline Cubic Boron Nitride - PCBN INSERTS and TOOLS|
|GENERAL APPLICATION GUIDELINES FOR FOR PCBN INSERTS
· Use a rigid machine that is fully capable of realizing the full productive potential of PCBN inserts.
·Don't use PCBN inserts for cutting easy-to-machine materials. They are designed to cut hardened
steels, cast irons and tough superalloys.
.Keep tool overhang to a minimum.
·Use negative-rake tools whenever possible.
·Avoid side-cutting edge angles under 15 degrees.
·Use plenty of cutting fluid: Soluble oil is suitable.
·Chamfer the existing edge of the workpiece to minimize burr formation on high-temperature alloys.
·Stop the cut immediately if chatter is audible. Chatter indicates that the tool edge is dull or the setup isn't rigid enough.
