1. The most important thing in processing is the tool
When any one tool stops working, it means that production has come to a standstill. But that doesn't mean every knife has the same importance. The tool with the longest cutting time has a greater impact on the production cycle, so under the same premise, more attention should be paid to this tool. In addition, attention should also be paid to the machining of critical components and tools with tight machining tolerances. In addition, tools with relatively poor chip control, such as drills, grooving tools, and threading tools, should also be paid attention to. Downtime due to poor chip control.
2. Match with the machine tool
There are right-hand and left-hand knives, so choosing the right knives is very important. In general, right-hand tools are suitable for machines with counterclockwise rotation (CCW) (as viewed in the direction of the spindle); left-hand tools are suitable for machines with clockwise rotation (CW). If you have several lathes, some holding left-handed tools that are left- and right-handed compatible, choose left-handed tools. For milling, people generally tend to choose more versatile tools. However, although such tools cover a larger machining range, they also immediately lose the rigidity of the tool, increase the deflection of the tool, reduce the cutting parameters, and are more likely to cause machining vibration. In addition, the manipulator of the machine tool to change the tool also has restrictions on the size and weight of the tool. If you purchased a machine tool with a through hole for the spindle, please also choose a tool with a through hole for the cooling.
