What requirements do the tools need to meet for the application of vertical machining centers?

Vertical machining centers play a great role in our mechanical processing. In our application of vertical machining centers, what are the application requirements of vertical machining centers? The editor will lead you to understand vertical machining What requirements do the tools need to meet for the center’s application?

  • 1) Different tools are determined according to the different materials of the workpieces to be processed by the vertical machining center. They are generally divided into 3 categories: tools used for cutting steel parts, including cutting low alloy steel, high alloy steel, non-alloy steel, and cast steel. ; Tools used for machining cast iron parts, including cutting gray cast iron, ductile iron, and aluminum alloys; Tools used for cutting stainless steel, including cutting stainless steel, heat-resistant alloys, alloys, etc.
  • (2) Select tools with different structural forms (external circular cutters as an example) according to the processing status of the workpiece to be processed by the vertical machining center (rough, semi-finishing, finishing): screw compression, suitable for light cutting and finishing, The insert has a positive rake angle; lever type clamping, suitable for cutting under normal circumstances, negative rake angle insert; screw upper pressure clamping, suitable for general cutting, negative rake angle insert; wedge rigid clamping, Suitable for powerful cutting in harsh environments, negative rake angle inserts.
  • (3) Determine the tool tip form and cutting parameters according to the surface quality and roughness requirements of the Turn-Mill Machining 6061-T1 Bicycle Trim Gasket. The surface roughness of the workpiece is determined by comprehensive factors such as the material of the workpiece, heat treatment status, hardness, selected cutting parameters and tool nose radius, as well as the rigidity of the workpiece, the fixture and the entire process system of the vertical machining center.

Therefore, in our actual applications, it is crucial to master these characteristics, which can enable us to better use the vertical machining center.
