Cutting Edge Preparation for Cemented Carbide Milling Tools


Article Preview

After the grinding process, the cutting edges of cemented carbide milling tools tend to chipping. Chipping has a strong influence on the tool performance. For this reason, the cutting edges are further prepared. Additionally, a cutting edge rounding has an impact on the wear behavior and the process stability. For the cutting edge preparation of milling tools, magnetic finishing is a promising process. This paper describes the process of magnetic finishing. The influencing parameters, i.e. the process time and the distance between the cutting tool and the magnetic disks, are investigated. Furthermore, the effect of magnetic finishing on the tool life is demonstrated using the example of a milling process with titanium.
