Delegates will be provided with a working understanding of the material characteristics of
carbide tools used in milling, turning and drilling and how they interact with ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. Emphasis is placed on tool material selection and optimising machining parameters to minimise disruption to the workpiece by the machining process.
• Appreciate how the choice of alloy type and shape forming and heat treatment processes influence the response of workpieces to machining.
• Understand the carbide materials used for cutting tool manufacture and how tools are made.
• Learn how machining processes can disrupt the metallurgy of the workpiece.
• Acquire techniques to minimise damage whilst optimising machining time and efficiency.
Who Should Attend?
The course has been designed for staff concerned with optimising the machining of metals. This
includes the specification of tooling and machining parameters, development of tooling and workpiece alloys, the sale and procurement of machining tools and product evaluation/quality control.
