Classification of milling inserts

Milling inserts can be divided into many types according to different cutting materials and shapes. The following are common types of milling inserts:


High-speed steel blades: High-speed steel blades are usually used for processing low-hardness metal materials, such as copper, aluminum, cast iron, etc. Its cutting speed is slow, but it has good wear resistance and toughness.


Carbide inserts: Carbide inserts are currently the most widely used milling inserts. They have high hardness and good wear resistance, and can be used to process high-hardness metal materials, such as steel, stainless steel, and cast steel.


Ceramic inserts: Ceramic inserts have extremely high hardness and wear resistance, and are often used to process difficult-to-machine materials such as high-hardness and high-temperature alloys, but they are highly brittle, and cutting conditions need to be paid attention to during processing.


PCD blade: PCD blade is a cutting tool made of polycrystalline diamond, which has extremely high hardness and wear resistance, and can be used for processing aluminum, copper, plastic and other materials.


CBN inserts: CBN inserts are cutting tools made of cubic boron nitride. They have high hardness and wear resistance and can be used to process materials such as steel and cast iron.


Special-shaped blades: In addition to the above conventional types of blades, there are also various special-shaped blades, such as ball-end blades, arc blades, chamfering blades, etc., which can be selected according to processing needs.


In general, there are many types of milling inserts, and it is necessary to select the appropriate type of insert according to the specific processing material and shape.Welcome to contact us if you have any inquiry of the products.
