For a wiper to work properly, there are two criteria:
- The surface has to be straight
- A specific approach angle is needed
As long as the machined surface is straight, a wiper can be added to the insert to fit the actual approach angle. In the following case, machining of an inner diameter on a large gear, the approach angle was 15 degrees.
When machining straight surfaces, a wiper insert should always be the first choice, and after our visit, we proposed to use a wiper insert. In this case, the customer requested that the first test was to be done at the existing cutting data, and tool life was significantly improved.
By adding a wiper, the tool life was increased significantly, and using higher feed rate also improved productivity.
