The PFERD tool range for use on stainless steels

In the modern world, stainless steels are finding their way into an increasing number of applications. Their outstanding properties, e.g., high resistance toughness have given rise to a broad variety of uses. In addition, new grades of these materials are being developed continuously for specific needs. Today, stainless steels have become indispensable in a broad range of industries and applications including chemical and petrochemical equipment. foodstuff processing vessels and machinery. process technology. pulp and paper processing. architecture (building fronts, handrails). power plant engineering. pump and turbine manufacturing. shipbuilding (piping, containers). structural and mechanical engineering. The particular characteristics of stainless steels impose specific requirements on the machining and finishing tools used. Thus, most austenitic steels are more difficult to machine than their unalloyed counterparts due to their stickiness, edge build-up tendencies, and strain hardening behavior. On the other hand, the eco-friendliness of stainless steels - as expressed in their durability, corrosion resistance even when uncoated, and recyclability - is a factor that has contributed not least significantly to their ever more widespread use.

"Stainless steel" is a collective term covering over 120 different steel grades which share the following properties:
They are alloyed with at least 10.5% chromi-

They are corrosion-resistant without any pro-

tective coating, forming an invisible surface passivation layer in the presence of oxygen. 1. The thermal conductivity of austenitic steels is lower to that of other steels (and most stainless steels are of the austenitic type). As a result, the heat generated by the rotating tool is not easily dissipated via the workpiece or the chips. 2. Cutting speeds should be kept lower than with other steels, regardless of the machining process used. The tool should not be applied with excess pressure. Local overheating may cause discoloration or distortion of the material, and thermal overloading of the tools would be a likely result. 3. Abrasives designed for use on stainless steels must contain no elementary iron, which might form corrosive deposits in the workpiece. Similarly, to avoid such "extraneous" rust, a tool previously used on non-stainless steel should never be used on stainless grades. 4. Chip particles from the workpiece ("sparks") may be transformed into non-stainless steel at the high temperatures developed during machining. Unless such particles are carefully removed, they too will cause extraneous rust on the workpiece surface. Thorough chemical and/or mechanical cleaning (by etching, pickling, polishing, etc.) is therefore indispensable to protect stainless steel from extraneous surface corrosion. As long as such cleaning is carefully performed and the workpieces are kept away from non-stainless grades, the formation of extraneous rust on stainless steel is virtually impossible.

PFERD offers an extensive range of tools meeting the specific requirements of the stainless steel processor. Many of these tools were purpose-designed for this application; all have been found to give good results in everyday practice. In addition, PFERD provides free applicationrelated advice on all machining issues involving stainless steels - without any obligation on your part. Our experienced field staff and technical customer service engineers will be glad to be of help. So why not give us a call? All of these tools are free of elementary iron, sulfur, or chlorine.

Tungsten carbide burrs

PFERD tungsten carbide burrs are excellent for deburring, chamfering, rounding and general geometry adjusting work. These burrs are available in numerous shapes and four cut types specifically for use on stainless steel. For maximum efficiency, they should be employed at the appropriate speed using an air-powered or electric prime mover systems of sufficient output . These tools can be very advantageously combined with flexible shaft drives. A lightweight handpiece allows the burr to be controlled flexibly with minimum operator fatigue, even in hard-to-reach areas. Machining tasks involving tungsten carbide burrs are increasingly handled by robotized systems, particularly in volume manufacturing. One advantage of PFERD tungsten carbide burrs is that the robot can use the same tools that are also used for freehand work, since PFERD products are manufactured to close tolerances and constant quality specifications. In selecting the proper cut, the following principles should be observed: 1. Cut fineness should increase with workpiece hardness and brittleness. 2. A finer cut may compensate to some extent for insufficient machine speed. The machine speeds needed for tungsten carbide burrs vary between 6000 and 50000 r.p.m., depending on tool size. For countersinking work with a 360 angle of wrap and in stationary machines, lower speeds may be used by way of exception. Use absolutely true-running chucks only, since tool chatter and out-of-roundness will result in premature wear and reduced surface quality.

1. The tungsten carbide material and recommended cut geometries of these tools are optimized for use on stainless steel. 2. PFERD tungsten carbide burrs are particularly wear-resistant and durable; they can also be re-ground. As a result, these products provide smooth and uniform stock removal (nick-free cutting edges provided). good chip removal. quiet, chatter-free operation. convenient tool control and reduced operator fatigue. high surface qualities. 3. In certain cases, tungsten carbide burrs can be supplied with a coating which protects against abrasive wear while reducing the heat load on the workpiece (refer to HICOAT coatings). Recommended cutting speeds: Cut 1 300-450 m/min Cut 3 250-350 m/min Cut 3 PLUS 250-350 m/min Cut 4 250-350 m/min Non-standard cuts and custom shank lengths and diameters are available upon request. HM - Cut 3 (according to DIN MY) Materials: For high-strength stainless steel, stainless steel castings. Applications: Deburring (including robotized operation) Chamfering.

CORINOX Files, Hole Cutters, Mounted Points

CORINOX precision files

CORINOX files have an outstanding surface hardness of 1200 HV. This makes them particularly suitable for hardto-cut materials such as stainless and highly heat-resistant steels. Their high surface hardness also gives CORINOX files an outstanding durability. These files leave no corrosive residue on the material and are non-loading. For chip removal it suffices to tap the file gently against a hard surface.

Carbide-tipped hole cutters

Designed for professional use, these cutting tools produce holes from 16 to 120 mm dia. quickly and accurately. They are suitable for use in both hand drills and stationary machines. PFERD carbide-tipped hole cutters come in two versions: 35 mm tool height types for use on pipes and curved surfaces, available in diameters from 16 - 60 mm. 8 mm tool height types for level or slightly curved surfaces, available in diameters from 16 - 120 mm.

Fine-Grinding Tools

Abrasive spiral bands

Abrasive spiral bands are perfect for grinding flat and contoured surfaces. Their peripheral grinding action ensures rapid stock removal. Three types of rubber holders are available: 1. Slotted drum type The drum body expands during rotation, causing the abrasive band to tighten around it. Holders are available in two hardness grades. 2. Cylindrical drum with clamping jaws For low-speed applications. The abrasive band is locked firmly in place by tensioning the rubber head. 3. Slotted cone type The function is the same as under 1. A-INOX types These abrasive bands are purpose-designed for use on stainless steel, combining fast stock removal with high durability. A special coating minimizes the thermal load on the workpiece. Z types Zirconia alumina grain (Z) is an ultra-tough abrasive material that resists highest operating loads, e.g., in edge breaking and deburring. Particularly aggressive stock removal and superior grinding performance are achieved at higher contact pressures, specifically with coarser grain. A type (aluminium oxide) These general-use products also give good results on stainless steel.

These cartridge rolls are used for leveling in hard-to-reach areas. They are suitable for use on steel, including stainless grades. As the outer layer wears off, fresh grain is exposed in successive layers. The product thus provides very good stock removal properties. The self-locking action on a grooved conical arbor permits fast tool changes.

Abrasive cloth rolls

Abrasive cloth rolls are in mechanical workshops, toolmaking and mechanical engineering environments. At the workplace, the requisite length of abrasive cloth can be simply pulled off the roll. This makes the product highly practical and costeffective in use. Soft and flexible, the abrasive cloth adapts excellently to irregular workpiece contours, concave/convex surfaces, and pipes.

A type (aluminium oxide) Available in 12 sizes and 3 grit sizes.

A type (aluminium oxide) Available in six roll widths and 10 finely graded grit numbers (36 - 800).

Fine-Grinding Tools

Fan grinders
The laminae holding the abrasive grain are arranged like a fan around the shaft of these tools. Depending on contact pressure and operating speed, fan grinders can achieve high stock removal rates or, alternatively, produce very smooth surfaces with reduced material removal. The operating speed limits imposed for safety reasons lie comfortably above the optimum speed for most grinding applications. The slit laminae of the fan grinder brushes adapt easily to both concave and convex workpiece contours. Diverse roughness levels required for functional or visual reasons can thus be easily produced. A-INOX types Designed specifically for stainless steels and high-temperature alloys, these grinders combine high stock removal rates with nonloading performance. Silicon Carbide C types The high hardness and sharpness of SiC grain minimizes thermal loads, thus avoiding heat build-up and cracking in high-alloy steels.

Flap wheels
Flap wheels can be used in conjunction with high-powered drive units to remove coarse surface irregularities (e.g., in weld dressing). They are principally designed to produce homogeneous finishes on larger surfaces and contours by freehand grinding (i.e., matt finishing). Used at the right speed, these tools can create an extra-fine surface finish that is an ideal starting point for subsequent polishing or buffing operations. They are likewise suitable for robotized processes and stationary machines. In the newly designed mounting system the flanges are fully recessed in the flap wheel. This is advantageous inasmuch as the wheel face can be brought up almost flush against the material when working near edges or corners. A-INOX types For efficient grinding on stainless steel, from coarse to fine. The abrasive performance of the flap wheel is greatly enhanced by active fillers. A types Suitable for universal fine-grinding applications on stainless steel grades.

POLIVLIES non-woven discs PV

POLIVLIES abrasive discs are highly flexible. They are suitable for surface grinding on thinwalled materials. These discs are commonly used in conjunction with the flexible plastic backing pad GT 178 OF M 14 (refer to Catalogue 209), e.g., in tank and pressure vessel manufacturing. Their recommended peripheral speed on stainless steels lies between 35 and 45 m/s (achievable with low-r.p.m. angle grinders). PV types (tissue backed) The abrasive material on these discs is a medium-grit aluminium oxide (A type).
