Use of Chip Breaker in Machining | Mechanics of Machining

Need and purpose of chip-breaking Continuous machining like turning of ductile metals, unlike brittle metals like grey cast iron, produce continuous chips, which leads to their handling and disposal problems. The problems become acute when ductile but strong metals like steels are machined at high cutting velocity for high MRR by flat rake face type carbide or ceramic inserts. The sharp edged hot continuous chip that comes out at very high speed • becomes dangerous to the operator and the other people working in the vicinity • may impair the…

The Advantages Of Serrated Button Inserts – Modern Machine Shop

Machinists aren’t likely surprised by the fact that the tool used in the long-reach application depicted in the video above features button-style inserts (courtesy of Ingersoll Cutting Tools, the video showcases the Form master R). Look a bit closer, however, and you’ll notice that those double-sided inserts aren’t perfectly round. Rather, the cutting edges are serrated. Employed correctly, a toothed edge can add to the strength and stability that have made button inserts so popular for heavy roughing. This January-issue article provides more information. Serrated button inserts like Ingersoll’s Form…
