Abstract

To increase the life of machining tools, the front facet A is precisely oriented for maximum hardness along the <110> direction and leading facet B and trailing facet C are arranged at a small angle 4 degrees + or - 1 degree to the true <110> direction, such that optimum hardness orientation is retained.

Diamond Burnishing Tool

To increase the life of machining tools, the front facet A is precisely oriented for maximum hardness along the <110> direction and leading facet B and trailing facet C are arranged at a small angle 4 degrees + or - 1 degree to the true <110> direction, such that optimum hardness orientation is retained.

The drawing show a diamond tool comprising a shank 1 with a diamond tool plate 2. The diamond tool plate 2 includes the three facets A, B and C on its front face. The true rake 3 is slightly inclined from true horizontal.

The increased life of the tool plate 2 is credited to the minimum angle of 4 degrees + or - 1 degree of leading facet B. Facets A and C have front clearance angles 5 and 6 of 7.5 degrees + or - 1 degree.
