Finishing of hardened steel is one of the most common CBN machining applications, with parts typically roughing with carbide inserts before heat treatment and finishing with CBN inserts after heat treatment. At this time, the finishing allowance is usually less than 0.5mm, and the type of CBN inserts used are mostly in the form of welding tips.
Considering the high hardness of CBN material, the use of welding tip is beneficial to improve the impact resistance of the entire blade, so as to improve the service life of the tool;
At the same time, due to the relatively high price of CBN materials, the CBN insert in the form of a welding tip has a very high cost-effectiveness advantage.
CBN tools have excellent performance, high hardness, wear resistance, and show red hardness and thermochemical stability at high cutting temperatures. They are more suitable for high-speed and dry cutting and advanced processing methods such as "turning instead of grinding". At the same time, it has better processing flexibility when cutting hardened steel, and its machined surface quality can also achieve or even exceed the effect that can be achieved by traditional grinding.
