Andrew Benson, co-general manager and chief marketing officer at Iscar Metals Inc., spoke with Don Nelson, publisher of Cutting Tool Engineering and MICROmanufacturing magazines, during IMTS 2012 to discuss the company's 60th anniversary and a variety of new products.
The cutting edges of cutting tools don’t actually produce chips. Instead, the pressure of a rapidly spinning tool on a workpiece plasticizes part of the parent material, creating a shearing effect that forces the material to ride up the tool. The flute and tool geometries form the chip and force it away from the tool body until it breaks off and…
