Turning steel within the range of 45-65 HRc is defined as hard part turning and is a cost efficient alternative to grinding. Hard part turning has been proven to reduce machining time and cost by 70% or more, and also offers improved flexibility, better cycle times, higher quality and is environmentally friendly.
As a single-point contact method, HPT can easily accomplish complex contours without need for the costly form wheels that multi-point contact grinding requires. Similarly, HPT permits machining of multiple operations with just one setup.
The result is excellent positional accuracy, reduced part handling and less risk of part damage. The environment also benefits from HPT as the technique eliminates grind waste and does not require coolant.
In this event, specialists from Sandvik Coromant will show you how to optimize hard part turning with the right tools and techniques.
