Different mechanical arrangements to execute the cutting action encourage a
Relative velocity to operate between the cutting tool and the workpiece.
As a result, the cutters have been called for their distinct machining functions.
The following is a list of commonly used cutting tools:
Many types of Cutting Tools:
Solid Carbide Drill
Solid Carbide Endmill
Single Point Turning Tool

Carbide cutting Tools
For the last few decades, carbide cutting tools and inserts have been the most
Extensively used tools in the machining industry.
However, have you ever pondered what Carbide is and why Carbide Cutting Tools have grown so popular? Carbide is a chemical compound made up of carbon and an element that is less electronegative than carbon.
Ø Tungsten, Titanium, Cobalt, Tantalum, or Vanadium are examples of less electronegative metals that can be used to make metal carbides.
Ø Carbon compounds with less electronegative non-metals such as Boron, Calcium, or Silicon are known as non-metal carbides.
Tungsten Carbide, or Carbide these days, is a compound of Carbon and Tungsten that has revolutionised the Machine Tool Industry in recent decades by giving greater cutting speed and feed rate as well as a longer tool life span than previous competitors.
Advantages of Carbide Cutting Tool
Abrasion resistance is remarkable in carbide tools.
Carbide tools on workpiece/parts machines produce a high-quality surface finish.
When compared to HSS tools, carbide tools may be worked at speeds that are roughly 6 to 8 times faster.
Catering and thermal deformations are not a problem for Carbide cutting tool
When compared to other materials like HSS, carbide tools have a high wear resistance, allowing the user to operate the tool at higher speeds and for longer periods of time.
Carbide cutting tools outperform their steel counterparts in terms of value for money.
Carbide Cutting Tools with tipped tips can be simply replaced for continued usage.
