Project description:Geometry of cutting edge has significant effect on wear resistance as well on durability of cutting tools. It is possible to produce near-net-shape cutting tools by both the foundry technology and the powder metallurgy and in the case of high speed steel (HSS) with significantly higher wear resistance compared to similar tools produced by conventional metallurgy using machining of wrought profiles. Optimization of cutting tool geometry will be carried out by numerical simulation of machining conditions and load for the tool in cutting process. Application of additive technologies, namely 3D printing of casting patterns from castable resin for investment casting into ceramic shell moulds, and cemented carbides (CC) from metal powder, provides flexible production of cutting tools with optimal shape without using very expensive and shape-complicated injection moulds for production of castable/burnout casting patterns as well as for forming dies for powder material compaction.
