Dry super-finishing processes and cutting tool edge improvement

Dry super-finishing processes and cutting tool edge improvement

For many decades there has been an awareness of cutting tool edge condition and tool surface finish and the effect it has on piece part quality and tool life. There have been many independent studies, tests, and implementations of edge conditioning methods to create extended life in turning, drilling, and milling cutter tooling – some published but most kept “secret” as a manufacturing advantage.
