    Default Turning grade5 titanium with pcd inserts

    Hey there guys it’s more of a curiosity thing for me at this point but can titanium be turned with pcd inserts?

    Kyocera specifies a grade of pcd and speeds and feeds for cutting titanium with their tools.

    Has anyone ever done it? Seen it done?

    PCB tools are typically pretty sharp and wear resistant. Titanium like sharp tools and wears them so it seems like a good fit?

    Looks like it's up to you to charge into the breach, then report back

    Yea that’s the plan once I get around to it.

    I ordered some of those Kyocera pcd inserts that they had listed for finishing titanium.

    i believe thats what they are made for. non-ferrous metals, abrasive plastic and ceramics incl. high-silicon aluminum.

    I got a few of these in the mail today. I chose one with a small tip radius as I wanted to be able to get to fine corners and basically all the other brands/grades of traditional carbide inserts had 1/64 nose rad. Should also allow to to just take a nice low force finishing cut.
