Custom carbide tools are an essential component of modern CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining, and are used in many industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical and consumer electronics.
These tools are made from a combination of tungsten carbide and cobalt, which makes them highly durable and able to withstand high temperatures and pressures. In addition to cutting and shaping various materials such as metals, plastics and woods, custom carbide tools can also be tailored to meet specific machining requirements, for example, the type of material, part shape, surface finish, cutting speed and feed rate.
Designing custom carbide tools usually involves the use of CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software, which enables engineers to create detailed 3D models of the tool and simulate its performance under various machining conditions, before it is made with CNC grinding machines. Compared to standard tools, custom carbide tools have longer tool life, better performance and reduce downtime.
Custom carbide tools are generally more expensive than standard tools because they require additional design and manufacturing processes. The final cost will depend on the complexity of the design, the size of the tool, the quantity being produced, and other factors.
In some cases, however, the additional cost of a custom carbide tool may be offset by the increased efficiency and productivity it delivers. For instance, a custom tool specifically designed for a certain part may reduce production time and costs compared to a standard tool.
Nevertheless, it's important to consider the cost-benefit of using custom carbide tools for a particular machining application. In many circumstances, a standard tool may be sufficient and more cost-efficient, especially for relatively simple operations or low-volume production.
When making the decision whether to use a custom carbide tool, it is essential to analyze the specific machining requirements, production goals, and overall costs and benefits.
The technical parameters of carbide custom tools vary depending upon the specific application and design of the tool. To ensure superior performance and longer tool life, it is important to carefully consider the following key technical parameters when designing custom carbide tools:
Material composition: Carbide custom tools are typically made from a combination of tungsten carbide and cobalt. The composition of the material can be tailored to optimize the tool's performance for a particular application.
Tool geometry: The geometry of the tool must include the size, shape, and angle of the cutting edges. This is to optimize the cutting performance and surface finish of the machined part.
Coatings: Common coatings such as titanium nitride (TiN), titanium carbonitride (TiCN), and diamond-like carbon (DLC) can be applied to the custom tool to improve wear resistance, reduce friction, and enhance chip evacuation.
Tool holder compatibility: The design of the custom tool must be compatible with the specific tool holder being used in the CNC machine.
Cutting parameters: To optimize the performance of the tool and achieve a high-quality machined surface, the cutting parameters such as cutting speed, feed rate, and depth of cut must be carefully selected.
Surface finish requirements: The machined part's surface finish requirements will also impact the design of the tool, as well as the selection of cutting parameters and coatings.
Here are some examples of machining applications where custom carbide tools are often more cost-effective than standard tools:
Overall, the decision to use custom carbide tools should be based on a careful analysis of the specific machining requirements, production goals, and overall costs and benefits. In many cases, custom carbide tools can provide significant advantages over standard tools, including improved performance, longer tool life, and reduced downtime, which can ultimately lead to cost savings over the long term.
