The steel grades
Our latest addition TP3501 are completing the grade order for steel turning where TP2501, TP1501 and TP0501 Duratomic grades already have a solid track record of improving performance and productivity in steel turning.
From the first developed Duratomic technology grade chain in 2007-2009, we have maintained the characteristics of each grade, while applying the vast knowledge we have gained on Duratomic technology and how it affects properties.
TP3501: SECURED PRODUCTIVITY
The Duratomic technology grade addition TP3501 is intended for most toughness demanding applications where the characteristic performance enhanced edge toughness is required. TP3501 is the first choice when secured productivity is the priority over maximized cutting data, especially in steel and in workpiece mixes with stainless steel.
TP2501: VERSATILE PRODUCTIVITY
Where versatility is needed and working conditions may not be perfect, TP2501 is the first choice for maximising manufacturing output under most varying productivity, cutting data and workpiece material requirements. An estimated 25% of steel turning applications feature working conditions that demand TP2501’s grade design and properties.
TP1501: BALANCED PRODUCTIVITY
TP1501 provides the first choice for high performance with well-balanced properties for different applications requiring high wear resistance and elevated cutting speeds. An estimated 20% of steel turning applications feature working conditions that demand TP1501’s design properties, and it is generally most applicable to workpieces made from softer, low-alloy steels.
TP0501: HIGH-SPEED PRODUCTIVITY
The first choice for achieving the highest possible wear resistance and/or cutting speeds, TP0501 requires stable conditions to provide high performance. Ideal applications have demands in dimensional stability, even under high thermal loads. TP0501 will provide exceptional benefits when applied to very abrasive steels.
The following chart illustrates the indicative positioning and application area for using TP3501, TP2501, TP1501 and TP0501 in steel workpieces.
The grade chain provides a very versatile and comprehensive range to cover the whole steel turning area. TP2501 is the most versatile option and TP3501 the most secure choice. TP1501 provides competent performance and balanced productivity for applications in low-alloy steels or using lower speeds. TP0501 o ers a high-heat pro le in general steel machining, particularly in high alloy steels.
