Cutting and drilling of tantalum
Buy tantalum in any amount at producer prices offered by the company Electrocentury-steel. The supplier ensures the delivery of products to any destination specified by the customer.
In turning operations, you must use the tools of high speed steel and use high cutting speeds (for most turning operations approach speed from 2500…3000 rpm). Lower speed can lead to tearing of the workpiece from tantalum. As the staging environment, the use of technological lubricant, and its amount should be increased. The same requirements should be observed during milling of the tantalum. It is recommended to use cutters with a serrated profile, which has a substantial back and side relief.
When drilling, you must ncarnival point for the future implementation of the working tool in the processing of the metal, to avoid unnecessary loss. Due to the nature of plastic flow of tantalum, for thread recommended fabric rolling machines and cutting equipment.
Grinding tantalum is extremely difficult, because the metal is ductile, and easily stick to the surface of the working tool. Effective grinding tantalum is only possible with the use of grinding disks on which surface has aluminium oxide (or any other material that is equivalent in performance).
Buy tantalum price from the manufacturer, the company offers Electrocentury-steel. Supplier guaranteed timely delivery of products to any place specified by the consumer.
Cutting of tantalum
Most separation operations with tantalum are conventional and are realized without any problems. However, it is well to remember two important characteristics of tantalum:
- Tantalum intensely sticks to metals, such as copper, lead, stainless steel. As a result, cut the blanks there are significant burrs, flaws, digs metal and other surface defects section;
- Cutting of tantalum should only be performed in cold condition.
When cutting the tantalum shears or punches the clearance between the knives and the tantalum billet and stamp should not exceed 6% of the thickness of the metal. Cutting it is desirable to perform periodically oiling the blades with light oil, perchloroethylene or trichloroethane, to exclude sticking of tantalum on the working surface of the cutting tool.
The company Electrocentury-steel offers to purchase tantalum in any quantity and assortment. The supplier ensures the delivery of products to the address specified by the consumer.
