High-speed steel blade maintenance guide: protect the blade and extend its service life

Apr 19, 2024

As a key component of cutting tools, the quality and performance of inserts have a direct impact on processing efficiency and finished product quality. In industrial production, high-speed steel blades are a commonly used tool material with wear resistance, high temperature resistance and good cutting performance. In order to ensure the normal operation of high-speed steel blades and extend their service life, this article will introduce you to some suggestions on the use and maintenance of high-speed steel blades.

Reasonable selection of blade type: Select the appropriate high-speed steel blade type based on specific processing requirements and material properties. Different types of inserts have different cutting geometries and edge treatments, so make your choice on a case-by-case basis to get the best results.

Install and adjust the blade properly: When installing the blade, make sure the blade is evenly and correctly seated on the knife holder. Adjust the blade position and cutting angle to ensure balanced distribution of cutting forces and accuracy of cutting results.

Use appropriate cutting parameters: Set cutting parameters appropriately based on factors such as material type, depth of cut, and feed rate. Excessive cutting depth or excessive feed rate will cause excessive wear or thermal fatigue of the blade and reduce blade life.

Check and clean blades regularly: Check blades regularly for wear, including edge wear and damage to the blade surface. Replace severely worn blades promptly to maintain processing quality. When cleaning the blade, use an appropriate detergent and brush to gently scrub the blade surface and avoid using hard objects to scratch the blade.

Pay attention to the cooling and lubrication of the blade: During the machining process, ensure that the blade is fully cooled and lubricated. Use coolant and lubricants to reduce heat and friction and prevent blade overheating and wear.

Store and protect blades: When not in use, store blades in a dry, clean environment away from moisture and corrosion. Use an appropriate blade protector or case to protect your blade from impact and damage.
