1. HSS solid spiral cutters or Carbide solid spiral cutters

Compred with the former one, tungsten carbide solid spiral cutters have a higher hardness. What’s more, carbide can upgrade cutting force. Spiral cutters with higher stifness and stronger cutting force can improve cutting speed and feed rate, which are directly affect the productivity. But everything has its advantages as well as its disadvantages. Tungsten carbide straight milling cutters with better property is more expensive than HSS speed steel, and with a high hardness, it is easily to be broken if you use it under an rapid alternation of speed. Besides, the HSS speed steel has a wider application. Even if cutting conditions are a little inappropriate, there will be no problem. Although solid carbide spiral cutter has good wear resistance in high speed cutting, its application range is not as wide as that of high speed steel solid carbide spiral cutter, and its cutting conditions is more strict than HSS spiral cutters.

2. Up milling and climb milling

To prevent the break of your cutter, we usually do climb milling rather than up milling. Climb milling can make router bits use longer. But we should pay attention to two things. First, if machining with ordinary machine tools, we need to try to eliminate the clearance in feeding mechanism. Secondly, when there’s an oxidation film or hardened layer on the surface of your workpiece, it is appropriate to use up milling.

3. Cutting speed

Cutting speed depends on your project’s materials, and feed speed mainly depends on materials of workpieces and the diameter of end mills. However, cutting parameters like speed is also affected by machine tools and its system. Shape of workpieces and how it is clamped, etc., so the cutting speed and feed speed should be adjusted appropriately according to actual situations.

The efficiency of cutting speed is affected by many things. Its materials, milling ways, etc. As for the selection of HSS solid spiral cutters and tungsten carbide solid spiral cutters, it depends on your workpiece. But if you want to cut cost and to have a quicker speed,  tungsten carbide solid spiral cutters with long service is absolutely your best choice.
