Abstract:

The technical feasibility of fabricating carbide coated cutting tools by the electrophoretic deposition process was demonstrated. Carbide coated lathe tool inserts were prepared which were equal or superior in tool life to commercial, solid, Type-C-6 carbide lathe tools in turning AISI 4340 steel, quenched and tempered to 300 and 500 BHN, at speeds to 200 f.p.m. Carbide coated, 14-in.-diam spade drills were produced which yielded a three-fold increase in tool life over an uncoated, Type T-15 cobalt HSS drill of the same geometry.
