Insert are the ones doing the job of cutting or milling the material with the help of tool holders. Inserts help in removing the metal and do the necessary machining work.
The Inserts also known as ‘Tipped Tool’ are the replaceable Cutting Edges Tool which is fitted in a Cutting or Milling gadgets or Lathe Machine. It is designed for giving finishing touch or smooth touch to the material that is being cut. It uses specific calculation to give an excellent end on the work-piece better than the normal handwork. Inserts are usually adjustable, like they can be rotated or flipped without disturbing the overall machinery Speed.
In Order to increase the Durability of carbide inserts, some of the following Coatings used are
Titanium nitride, TiN
Titanium carbide, TiC
Titanium carbide-nitride, TiCN
Titanium aluminum nitride, TiAlN
A Coating makes the cutting tip to cut cleanly, smoothly and pass through the work-piece without having flaw in it. The coating commonly raises the tool’s hardness quality and keeps the temperature constant or low during cutting process which in turn increases the life of the tool. The special method called ‘Thermal CVD’ (Chemical Vapor Deposition) is used in tool coating and other with Mechanical PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) at lower temperatures.
Carbide grade tipped tools are more economical and price effective in comparison with other High speed tools.
Carbide tools hold their stiffness or hardness even at higher machining temperatures.
Insert tools can be easily set-up on a machine and it can be changed without disturbing that set-up.
Carbide tools are durable because they have higher resistance to wear and tear.
Carbide tools can meet a better surface finish Quality.
Applications of the Inserts are
It is used for Milling and Drilling a material.
Inserts are used in Saw Blades, Cutters, Drillers and Millers to cut the hard material.
It is used in Automotive Industry.
Used in Sanitary and Building technology.
