Currently, CNC manufacturing companies are facing many challenges in production:
1) Reduce the cost of individual parts to maintain competitiveness
2) Break through the bottleneck of processing
3) Improve metal removal rate
4) Improve the utilization rate of machine tools
5) Reduce tool clamping or tool changes
There must be a way to produce the component more cost-effective! Progress isn’t always big changes are needed every time. The progress in actual production is usually obtained by many small optimizations, but the benefits brought by it are greatly improved.
The extension of the operation life of tools and the enhancement of wear resistance and heat resistance can help minimize unexpected downtime, improve the safety, processing efficiency and productivity of the turning process, and reduce the waste of cemented carbide inserts and workpiece materials. It is a necessary condition to realize sustainable processing.
GC4425 tool is the material of choice for steel turning, and it performs better than competitors in most steel turning applications. The wear resistance, heat resistance and toughness of the new material have been improved.
And expand the scope of application：
1) Low alloy steel and non-alloy steel
2) Suitable for mass production
3) External and internal machining
4) Continuous cutting and slightly interrupted applications in finishing machining and roughing machining
What kind of impact does the rise of metal raw materials bring to CNC machining factory? In particular, metallic copper belongs to a variety that has a strong linkage with the international market. From March last year to May this year, the domestic copper price soared from around 35,000 yuan per ton to 75,000 yuan per ton.
As the epidemic swept the world last year, and then the world’s major economies continued to expand money supply to stimulate the economy, copper prices soared to the current more than 70,000 yuan, a record high in the past 15 years. Since May this year, copper processing companies have experienced a reduction in output, which is the same period in previous years. The raging production scene is in sharp contrast, production has been forced to slow down, and shipments have dropped significantly, resulting in a high inventory of finished products.
After the Spring Festival this year, global copper inventories increased by 200,000 tons year-on-year. In the same period of the previous year, the conventional inventory fell by 200,000 to 300,000 tons. The rapid increase in copper prices inhibited downstream processing demand. The increase in raw material prices, coupled with the superimposition of exchange rate, freight and other factors, As a result, the prices of some products have increased significantly.
Sellers are also actively making suggestions for customers to save transportation costs through methods such as sub-packaging by sea. In order to relieve pressure, business operators reduce the impact of rising raw materials through bulk purchases and storage of raw materials in advance. At the same time, actively develop domestic and foreign markets and diversify sales channels.
