Cutting Tool Materials

Abstract

This chapter provides the state-of-the-art materials engineering sector that produces cutting tool materials for different manufacturing branches. It highlights the special demands on this special material group for modern machining technologies. Five groups of cutting tool materials are characterized in terms of their mechanical and thermo-physical properties: high-speed steels, sintered tungsten carbides, cermets, ceramics and superhard materials, all as conventional (uncoated) and coated grades. The most popular techniques of coating deposition on various substrates are described. Practical examples of cutting tool inserts made of various materials produced by leading world manufacturers and their ...
