Comparison of Different Cemented Tungsten Carbides Applied to Particle-Board Machining Endmills - F. Jorge Lino; João Guimarães; Luís Teixeira; A. M. Baptista; Tiago Fernandes; Fernando Figueiredo
Nowadays, many industrial companies have already established procedures to incorporate recycled products in their production lines. According to recent statistics, the wood recycling is growing exponentially, with products like MDF (medium density fiberboard), OSB (oriented strand board) or Particleboards being more and more important in the wood/furniture industry. Many times these products have different types of debris (small stones, metallic nails, etc.) that escape from the controller in the manufacturing lines. Machining these particleboards is very challenging, especially because of the wear defects that the debris can cause to the tool cutting edges.
