Some features of failure of hard-alloy cutters

V. V. Bespalov, B. P. Gritsenko

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Features of the damage of hard-alloy cutters have been studied revealing that their edges disintegrate in stages through fragmentation and the formation of mesostrips. It is shown that the surface ultrasonic standing waves induced when turning steel may play a significant role in the failure of cutters.
