Coated inserts and YT carbides will have a sharp affinity with titanium
alloys, aggravating the bonding wear of the tool, not suitable for cutting
titanium alloys, for complex, multi-edged tools, optional high-speed steel (e.g.
W12Cr4V4Mo), high-cobalt high-speed steel (e.g. W12Cr4V4Mo) Such as
W2Mo9Cr4VCo8) or aluminum high-speed steel (such as W6Mo5Cr4V2Al, M10Mo4Cr4V3Al)
and other tool materials, suitable for the production of cutting titanium alloy
drills, reamers, pullers, taps and other tools.
The use of diamond and cubic boron nitride as tools to cut titanium alloy,
can achieve significant results.
If the emulsion is cooled with natural diamond cutters, the cutting speed
can be up to 200 m/min, and without cutting fluid, only 100 m/min is allowed
for the same amount of wear.
