What is the difference between high speed tool steel and carbide tool?

Cemented carbide has high hardness, strength, wear resistance and corrosion resistance. It is known as “industrial teeth” and is used in the manufacture of cutting tools, cutting tools, cobalt tools and wear parts. It is widely used in military and aerospace. , mechanical processing, metallurgy, oil drilling, mining tools, electronic communications, construction and other fields, with the development of downstream industries, the demand for hard alloys continues to increase. And the future of high-tech weaponry equipment manufacturing, advances in cutting-edge science and technology, and the rapid development of nuclear energy will greatly increase the demand for high-tech content and high-quality stability of cemented carbide products.

Carbide is widely used as tool materials, such as turning tools, milling cutters, planers, drills, boring tools, etc., for cutting cast iron, non-ferrous metals, plastics, chemical fiber, graphite, glass, stone and ordinary steel, can also be used for cutting Heat-resistant steel, stainless steel, high-manganese steel, tool steel and other difficult-to-machine materials.

Superhard tools have emerged as the higher requirements for the processing of modern engineering materials in terms of hardness, and have developed considerably in the last 40 years of the 20th century. The chemical composition of superhard materials and the hardness of their formation are different from those of other tool materials. Cubic boron nitride is a non-metallic boride with a crystal structure of face-centered cubes; while diamond is converted from carbon, its crystal structure and cubic nitrogen Similar to boron, their hardness is much higher than other substances.

Superhard tool materials, especially diamonds, come in many varieties.

Cubic boron nitride has CBN single product powder for making abrasive tools; PCBN poly wafer and PCBN polycrystalline composite sheet for making tools and other tools. Cubic boron nitride is artificial.

Diamond is divided into natural diamond (ND) and synthetic diamond synthetic diamond with PCD single crystal powder for making abrasive tools; PCD single crystal can be used as tool; PCD polycrystalline wafer and polycrystalline composite sheet for making tools and other tools; CVD diamond film and thick film can be used to make tools, tools, and as high-tech raw materials for optics and electronics.
