2) the most intensive initial wear is in the cutting length L up to 3270 m--the width of the cutting edge b is rapidly increasing.
To further reduce the likelihood that the drill will wander, the cutting edge is divided into two equal-length cutting edges that are set at opposing angles to each other.
Joachim Koller, responsible for technical service at Seco says: "Because of the round insert, the cutting edge has a larger radius, which in turn allows higher feedrates.
For example, measuring the roughness on the flank and rake face of a cutting edge. It is also possible to evaluate the roughness of curved surfaces.
For future research on improving machined surface using these two tools, it will also be necessary to track the wear of cutting edges for machining with higher feed rate and to monitor the quality of machined surface at a certain degree of wear, this allow for precise design of the material for the cutting inserts under given machining conditions on different materials in manufacturing practice.
Thanks to its basket arch cutting edges, open chip breaker groove behind the cutting edge, and reinforced chip breaker blades it can handle smooth and interrupted cuts.
The Xtra*tec F4033 face milling cutter is fitted with double-sided square indexable inserts, which offer eight effective cutting edges. This feature reduces the costs-per-cutting edge.
The new drill is a two-effective indexable insert drill available in lengths 3x, 5x, and 7x diameter, and has two cutting edges to perform at twice the feed of conventional indexable insert drills.
