Hardly anything is more resilient to wear and tear than PCD milling inserts, which are crafted from polycrystalline diamond. This composite works well with aluminum, plastics, and other material varieties, making it a popular choice in various machining tasks.
A plethora of choices await when exploring PCD milling inserts. Depending on the project’s specific requirements, the right size, shape, and grade can be found. K10, K20, and K30 come most frequently to the table. Their applications include machining aluminum, plastics and composites respectively. If further wear resistance is desired, K10 and K20 inserts are available featuring a TiAlN (titanium aluminum nitride) coating.
For enhancing productivity in face and copy milling, PCD milling inserts are an ideal choice. Mount the insert in a milling cutter body and spin it at a fast rate. The cutting edge of the insert will make contact with the workpiece, chipping away material to craft the desired shape.
The CNC spindle acts as the platform whereupon the tool holder is fastened, presenting the insert adjacent to the surface of the workpiece. By turning the spindle slowly, pockets of material are gradually whittled away until the insert has achieved the specified shape. This practice known as copy milling.
PCD milling inserts are renowned for their impressive durability and are versatile enough to be used when cutting a variety of materials. K10 and K20 inserts have been developed specifically for machining aluminum and plastics, and K30 is mainly used for milling composite surfaces. Each of these grades can be enhanced with an extra layer of TiAlN coating to further protect against wear.
