  • Patent number: 10632584
    Abstract: A machining process includes providing a cutting tool having a rake face and a flank face; bringing the cutting tool into contact with a metal alloy work piece to form a chip by penetrating the cutting tool into the workpiece; and introducing a nanofluid into a vicinity of the penetration to remove heat and, in some instances, customize the finished surface. The nanofluid includes a mixture of a cryo-liquid and nanoparticles having a maximum size of approximately 0.1 nanometers to approximately 100 nanometers.

  • Patent number: 10384368
    Abstract: A contoured rake face cutting tool and method of making is disclosed. A rotary cutting tool with a plurality of teeth can cause damage to a work piece during cutting. By orienting the cutting angle of the teeth relative to the rotational central axis to high shear angle such as 50 or 70 degrees, the tool creates a high compression cut which is cleaner and less damaging to the work piece. The cutting surface itself is profiled, i.e. non-planar, such as concave or convex or other non planar shape, which is preferably formed into an ultra-hard material which is supplied for use in a planar form.

  • Patent number: 8434975
    Abstract: A double-sided milling cutting insert has usable upper and lower faces. The upper face has a polygonal shape with curved edges. The lower face has a rotationally symmetrical relation to the upper face. Flank faces connect edges of the upper face to corresponding edges of the lower face. Upper cutting edges are formed on one of the edges of the upper face. The upper chip-forming portions have rake faces inclined downwardly from the upper cutting edges inwardly of the cutting insert and a plurality of protrusions arranged along inner boundaries of the rake faces for deflecting chips. When the cutting insert is mounted on the cutting tool, a width of the rake face of the upper chip-forming portion adjacent to an edge portion forming a main cutting edge gradually increases in a direction going away from a rotational axis of the cutting tool.

    Abstract: The present invention relates to a cutting tool capable of both drilling and internal/external turning. The cutting tool comprises a generally triangular-shaped cutting insert and a tool holder. On each side, the triangular-shaped cutting insert forms a major cutting edge and a minor cutting edge, which is shorter than said major cutting edge. Two adjacent major cutting edges form an angle of 60° therebetween, while adjacent major and minor cutting edges intersecting at a corner of the triangular shape of the cutting insert form an angle of 80 to 89° therebetween. The cutting insert is mounted in a pocket so that one of the major cutting edges of the cutting insert is projected in an axially forward direction of the tool holder, while the minor cutting edge on the side adjacent to the projected major cutting edge is projected in a radially outward direction of the tool holder.

The cutting surface of the cutting plate is arranged at a distance of at least 0.02 mm from the cutting edge on one side in the region of the cut part and at least partially has a peak-to-valley height which increases by at least 0.01 mm in order to assure the production of cut fragments in the main cutting area and to prevent a build up of cuts in the region of auxiliary cutting section and/or to simplify the removal of cuts. Also high targets can be reached by virtue of the fact that the cutting plates define at least one cutting cavity in the cutting surface thereof at a distance of at least 0.02 mm from the main cutting edge on the end side in the region of the entry angle.
