A knowledge of edge strength
is especially important since tool edges that appear to be good may have been damaged during brazing or grinding, Stewart said, resulting in disintegration of the edge on contact with the wood workpiece.
Simple codes tell the user the relative edge strength
on the insert.
The WM design has excellent edge strength
and is for situations where high productivity is paramount.
A sharp, positive insert shape can deliver low cutting forces and good edge strength
Despite the slightly higher cutting forces and higher required power with the new 3M-AXKT, the overall forces distribution, cutting edge strength
, and cutter rigidity are improved.
Superior edge strength
from a variable width land and a widening chip gullet are two prime features of the insert.
