When machining materials, the most suitable cutting tool material (grade) and insert geometry for each workpiece are important considerations for a trouble-free and productive machining process. Other parameters, such as cutting data, tool path, etc. are also vital for a successful result.
This section provides basic information about:
- Cutting tool materials, such as cemented carbide, ceramics, CBN, PCD, etc.
- Workpiece materials and classifications from a machinability point of view
