Valenite’s VP9605 turning grade with MicroForm technology improves production cost savings on average by 35% with no loss of tool life and works well in demanding environments, according to the company. The grade is suited for the aerospace industry in semifinishing to finishing applications as well as automotive, die and mold, off-highway, and marine industries. MicroForm is a special carbide-grade method of powder preparation and sintering, providing the capability to direct-press inserts with a superior uniform micrograin structure. This extremely hard carbide grade has a homogeneous grain structure that is free of inclusions and cubic carbides, a potential source of crack propagation that leads to chipping. It maintains sharp edge conditions in work-hardening materials. VP9605 is used for hardened steels, heat-resistant superalloys, titanium, aluminum, and nonferrous materials.
