A Guide to Installing and Inspecting Carbide CNC Tool Inserts

China, 29th Dec 2023, King NewsWire CNC tools are widely used high-speed cutting tools, with commonly used materials including high-speed steel, carbide, ceramics, etc. They possess a series of advantages such as high wear resistance, high bending strength, good impact toughness, and high hardness, making them the ideal choice for turning tools. Turning with carbide inserts is a primary process in carbide machining, especially in the heavy machinery manufacturing industry, where tool selection is crucial. Below, the carbide CNC tool manufacturer will introduce you to the installation and inspection of carbide CNC tool inserts in the machining process.

Versatile Shank Types: Foundation of CNC Tooling

CNC tools generally come in three types: rectangular shank, cylindrical shank, and taper shank. Taper shanks, planer blades, and the like are generally rectangular shanks. The taper of the taper shank bears axial thrust, transmitting torque through friction. Cylindrical shanks are typically used for smaller tools like twist drills and vertical milling cutters, where the twisting force is transmitted through the friction generated during clamping. Many CNC tool handles are made of low-alloy steel, with working components welded together using high-speed steel.

The Anatomy of CNC Tools: Working Parts Explained

The working part of a CNC tool is the portion that generates and processes chips, including the cutting edge, the structure that causes chip breakage or curling, the space for chip evacuation or containment, and the cutting fluid channel, among others. Some tools have cutting components like turning tools, planing tools, boring tools, milling cutters, etc. Some tools have both cutting and calibrating components, such as drills, counterbores, reamers, internal table pullers, taps, and more. The cutting part of the CNC tool is responsible for removing chips with its blade, while the calibrating part is used to finish and guide the machined surface.


The working parts of CNC cutting machines can be integral, welded, or mechanical. The entire structure serves as a cutting edge and is welded onto the tool body. The welding structure combines the blade with the steel knife, and the mechanical clamping mechanism has two types: one is using a blade to secure it to the tool body, and the other is welding the blade to the tool body. Carbide tools are generally of welding or mechanical clamping structures, while ceramic tools are all mechanically clamped.
