Thread: High-tensile steel
Thank you for entering in my post
What sort of steel would you classify as High-tensile steel, and if you have any experience in machining High-tensile steel, what sort of problems does it give?
and what sort of cutting speeds would you use with HSS and carbide cutters to machine it?
I did probably already machine this steel but I did not know it could be classified as High-tensile steel?
Thank you very much in advance for your support
If in doubt I consult Machinery's Handbook, if you don't have a copy I recommend you shop for one on Amazon or eBay as they're a brilliant book for reference and for general leafing through and reading, you'd be surprised what you discover while reading any given copy of Machinery's Handbook, I have a copy from the 1950s and one from the late 1980s
Thank you very much, to everyone
Could we say that body cutters are in high-tensile steel? What sort of cutting speeds with carbide general purpose tips would you use to cut it? could we say from 10 meters per minute to 20 meters per min, do you use coolant? I know most of the time air is used on this kind of steels... Thank you very much again your support
High tensile steel is a very general term. More specific, but still general terms would be Low/Mid/High Carbon steels.
For speeds/feeds you really need to know the exact grade and current state (i.e. annealed, hardened, tempered - bigger sized bars in certain grades can have varying states of hardness/temper as you move from the perimeter to centre).
A good start for speeds/feeds, is to use a speed and feed calculator, which should give you some reasonable numbers to start with. A good online calculator is FS Wizard - http://zero-divide.net/index.php?page=fswizardAvoiding the rubbish customer service from AluminiumWarehouse since July '13.
the body cutter of any indexable cutter
I would say they are engineering steels. No need for high tensile properties.www.emvioeng.com

Body Cutter means "a cutter for use on a body"
I asked the question because even the context in which the question was asked left the meaning ambiguous and I wondered if you might be referring to the kind of sheet metal cutters used by panel beaters and body workers.
