New Cast Iron Machining Grade for High-Speed and Roughing Applications

Added to MTDCNC by Taegutec on 04 July 2016

Cast iron has become one of the easier metals to machine, however, recent machining trends have seen the introduction of excessively high cutting speeds to improve productivity and the increasing demand for machining complicated shapes.

To work with these trends, TaeguTec has introduced a new grade specifically designed for high-speed and rough machining of cast iron has emerged. The new TT7515 grade has been applied to an improved substrate to boost both toughness and hardness. This maximises the wear resistance through the newest special CVD coating technology.

The improved carbide substrate offers better stability with more uniform and rigid reinforcement while its strong coating adhesion inhibits coating layer delamination. The TT7515 grade shows outstanding performance during high-speed machining of gray cast iron and achieves stable machining by suppressing the abrupt failure even under unstable machining conditions.

Another major advantage from TaeguTec is that the latest coating increases tool life. The TT7515 grade complements the existing TT6800 grade as it covers the same application range while enabling improved performance. Hence, the existing TT6800 will be phased out and replaced with the TT7515 grade. To put it to the test, TaeguTec pitted the TT7515 grade against a leading competitor’s similar offering and found that tool life increased by 40 percent while machining a grey cast iron workpiece material.
