Machining: Metal Cutting
391 Impact of Workpiece Materials

CourseCode: SOC-391-260260
Length: 1 Hours

Target Audience
Advanced Level

Impact of Workpiece Materials gives a detailed overview of the various types of workpiece materials, how they can be processed, and the challenges posed by each. Ferrous and nonferrous metals are the most common workpiece materials, and each metal has different properties and cutting tool compatibility. Non-metallic materials, such as carbides, ceramics, plastics, and composites, may require machining processes. These materials have very unique qualities, and thus have specific requirements regarding cutting tools and cutting conditions.A working knowledge of the different varieties of workpieces, their properties, and how to process them, is indispensable. In addition to understanding cutting tool properties, familiarity with the properties and demands of workpieces ensures that operators can capably run any operation. Optimizing cutting conditions leads to better products, higher output, and reduced manufacturing costs.
