Insert milling of hard steel
Finding the right coating for an OEM customer machining 1.2379 steel with an HRC of 62. The cutting speed of the process is 160 m per minute. Cutting length is 141 m. Other process parameters: feed per tooth is 0.25 mm, axial depth is 0.22 mm and radial depth is 0.3 mm.
- Plastic deformation consequently of high temperatures
- Abrasive wear
- Cutting edge chipping
- High hardness
- High temperature resistance
