Customer Case-Carbide Inserts Processing Steel Connecting Rod

13 September 2023
Examples of using carbide inserts to process connecting rods:
Our common connecting rod materials include the following:
Cast Iron: Cast iron connecting rods are typically used in low power and low RPM engines. Cast iron has good wear and corrosion resistance and is suitable for some general applications.
Cast Steel: Cast steel connecting rods are commonly used in engines of moderate power and speed. Cast steel has high strength and durability and can withstand high pressures and temperatures.
Forged Steel: Forged steel connecting rods are often used in high-power and high-rpm engines. Forged steel has greater strength and toughness and can withstand higher pressures and temperatures, making it suitable for high-performance applications.
Connecting Rods
A customer from Indonesia needed carbide inserts to process connecting rods in engines.
MoreSuperHard’s professional engineers learned about the processing information in detail after communicating one-on-one with the customer:
Carbide insert model:
TCMT110208-PF4 WSM20
CCMT060208-PF4 WAP20
CCMT 09T308-2FV1133
Processing method: intermittent processing
Processing material: steel
Since the service life of the carbide inserts used by the customer before was not ideal, they hoped that MoreSuperHard could provide carbide inserts with a longer service life.
The following are the processing area diagrams and workpiece diagrams provided by this customer:
Workpiece Connecting Rods
Using carbide inserts for machining connecting rods has several advantages:
High hardness and wear resistance: Carbide inserts are usually made of tungsten-cobalt alloy, which has extremely high hardness and wear resistance. This material can maintain cutting edge sharpness under high-speed machining conditions and can handle workpiece materials with high hardness and high wear resistance.
High-precision machining: The manufacturing process of cemented carbide inserts is complex and precise, with excellent cutting performance and high cutting stability. When used to machine high-precision workpieces such as connecting rods, carbide inserts provide more accurate and consistent machining results.
Long service life: Carbide inserts have excellent wear resistance and durability, thus providing a long service life when machining workpieces such as connecting rods. This reduces the need for frequent insert replacements, saving manufacturing costs and time.
High-efficiency machining: Carbide inserts can provide high cutting speed and cutting efficiency during high-speed machining. This means that when machining connecting rods, carbide inserts can achieve faster machining speeds, thereby increasing production efficiency.

Overall, the use of carbide inserts for machining connecting rods provides excellent cutting performance, high efficiency and high-precision machining. This makes carbide inserts ideal for machining highly hard and wear-resistant workpieces such as connecting rods.
