Development & Application of Polycrystal Cubic Boron Nitride Cutting Tool Material


Article Preview

This article illustrates the production method and mechanical & physical properties of polycrystal cubic boron nitride (PCBN) cutting tool material. As shown by the turning machining of hardened steel, cold-hardened cast iron and composite materials, PCBN cutting tool is superior in cutting performance to cemented carbide and ceramics cutting tools. In recent years, with great improvement in production process and overall mechanical properties of PCBN cutting tool material, it can effectively make rough machining of ferrous metal. This article contributes to the popularization and application of this cutting tool.
