How to Improve Life of Tungsten Carbide Milling Cutter

Now, as a kind of carbide cutters, the tungsten carbide cutter, which is not easy to wear and has a very high hardness, is very popular in the market. As the name suggests, carbide cutter is a tool made of tungsten steel. The application of carbide cutter is very wide, and it can be installed on CNC engraving machine and common milling machine to process some hard and uncomplicated heat treatment materials. Although the hardness of tungsten steel milling cutters is second only to diamonds and is not easy to wear, any metal will inevitably wear out during long-term use. So this article will tell you how to improve life of tungsten milling cutter. Here are 3 effective tips.

 

  • Choose a reasonable cutting amount for the carbide cutter

  • Improve the geometry of carbide cutter

  • Improve the processing conditions of carbide cutter and select suitable processing materials

 

1. Choose a reasonable cutting amount for the carbide cutter

There is no doubt that if you set the cutting depth to be too large and the daily workload of the tungsten carbide cutter is too large, the wear of the tungsten carbide cutter will be faster. The cutting amount will directly affect the durability of the tungsten carbide cutter. So you need to choose a suitable cutting amount. Reasonable cutting amount can not only guarantee the output you need, but also within the capacity of the carbide cutter without excessive loss. We all know that the high-speed work of the carbide cutter is much better than the low-speed work. Reducing the amount of cutting a little bit can ensure that the carbide cutter achieves stable machining under high-speed milling. Reasonable cutting amount can maintain the wear resistance of tungsten steel milling and the excellent quality of the machined surface.

 

2. Improve the geometry of carbide cutter

In fact, the geometry of the carbide cutter also has a great influence on the lifetime of the carbide cutter. Different carbide milling cutters have different cutting forces with different blade shapes. After research, we suggest that you should try to use a carbide cutter with a larger rake angle. When the entering angle of the carbide cutter is reduced, the length of the cutting edge to participate in the cutting increases, so that the cutting heat is relatively dispersed, and the increase of the nose angle can reduce the cutting temperature. Improving the geometry of the carbide cutter can effectively increase the service life of the carbide milling cutter.

 

3. Improve the processing conditions of carbide cutter and select suitable processing materials

A good working environment can make the carbide cutter better realize its capabilities. You can understand the cutting status of the accessory through vibration analysis, and adjust it in time to make the carbide cutter have a good working environment. Good processing conditions can not only improve work efficiency, but also increase the service life of the carbide cutter. Although we know that the hardness of the carbide cutter is very high, second only to diamonds, this does not mean that you can use the carbide cutter to cut any material at will. Choosing inappropriate processing materials to cut with the carbide cutter will not only reduce the processing efficiency, but also cause wear to the carbide milling cutter. Therefore, you should choose the cutting material according to the hardness of the workpiece and the actual processing conditions.
