MACHINABILITY OF 1035 STEEL
Steel 1035 is a Carbon Steel material with 0.4% carbon content. Carbon steels range in carbon content between 0.08% to 1%. The machinability is very sensitive to the amount of carbon. Materials with little carbon content (below 0.15%) are too soft and gummy, and materials with a carbon content above 0.5% are harder and thus have lower machinability
Since Steel 1035, has 0.4%, it is relatively easy to machine with a good hardness/mildness balance and a machinability rating of 76%.
For general turning of Steel 1035 at stable conditions use a grade with a hard substrate and CVD coating.
In case you are running at a cutting speed that is lower than 490 SFM (150 m/min), it is better to use a grade with a
Hard substrate and PVD coating.
For general Milling use a grade with a semi hard substrate and thin PVD coating.
For detailed carbide grades recommendations, check the table below.
Recommended Cutting speed range for turning at stable conditions is 930 - 1260 [SFM] / 285 - 385 [m/min].
Recommended Cutting speed range for milling with stable clamping and short overhang is 570 - 790 [SFM] / 175 - 240 [m/min]
