Forming processes and processes offering final shape by machining losses, pose higher and higher requirements for the materials used for cutting tools. Ensuring the right quality of the surface and efficiency of the cutting process are the main challenges for materials and tools in the machining operation, with the simultaneous increase of requirements of the treated materials.
One of the directions in the development of tool materials, next to the CVD coatings, is the CUBNEC composite (Cubic Boron Nitride Enhanced Cemented Carbide). This material provides a high degree of hardness, guaranteeing resistance to abrasion, and the appropriate impact resistance which prevents the blade from chipping. GeniCore’s innovative, composite material can be successfully used in the process of turning, milling, and the grinding of materials in various industries, including iron-based materials.
