One way to reduce energy consumption is to reduce the cutting speed. In many cases, manufacturers can increase the proportion of feed and cut depth to maintain productivity. In addition to saving energy, this strategy also extends tool life. This, in turn, reduces the waste generated from processing operations, reducing the cut edges and the consumption of “disposable” inserts to produce the same number of parts. Using lower cutting speeds also produces fewer calories, which can reduce the need for metal processing coolants, which in themselves are undesirable waste in the process of metal processing.


Because ISO P steel is considered too familiar and widely used in conventional parts, machining operations involving alloys are generally not subject to intense interest and analysis. However, when the manufacturer understands, iron and steel company is now facing multiple processing challenges can be overcome by careful tool selection, part of the high volume can even make machining tiny improve productivity, to profitability and even contribute to environmental protection.

Stainless steel is a versatile material that is widely used in areas of strength and high temperature and corrosion resistance. However, the same properties complicate the process of machining successful components of stainless steel alloys. The combination of careful consideration between cutting tool performance and geometry and the application of cutting parameters can significantly improve the production efficiency of stainless steel.

Alloy evolution

The basic stainless steel alloys are classified as ferrite or martensite. Ferrite alloys are 10-12% chromium and cannot be hardened. Martensitic alloys have higher chromium and carbon content than ferritic stainless steel, and manganese and silicon increase, resulting in alloys that can be hardened by heat treatment. Today, ferrite and martensite stainless steel are not commonly used in industrial environments, but are used in household items such as kitchen or garden tools.
