Single blade double blade cutter ring disc ring used for shield tunneling machine
Cutter rings are produced from high-speed steel alloy (H13) in different hardness to accommodate various geological conditions such as clay alluvium, granite, dolomite, basalt, and limestone. The diameter varies from 12″ to 21".
The quality and lifetime of the excavation tools have a noticeable effect on the tunnelling performance and the economic efficiency of mechanized tunnelling. The high material quality of the tools ensures the productive removal of soil or rock on the one hand, and low downtimes due to high durability on the other. The excavation tools are installed on the cutterhead - in soft ground called cutting wheel. With the rotational movement of the cutterhead and the thrust of the hydraulic jacking stations, the excavation tools loosen the rock and / or the soil at the tunnel face. Depending on the geology, the cutterhead is equipped with cutting knives and / or disc cutters (discs) or rippers. To ensure that a project remains within the calculated budget, also with respect to tooling, the excavation tools must perform as forecast even with extremely high rock strengths, abrasion and water pressures.
The nature of the ground conditions determines the choice and positioning of the excavation tools for the cutterhead or the cutting wheel. Only if the tools are perfectly matched to the geology, the TBM can achieve high tunnelling performances. However, the respective ground conditions challenge the reliability of the tools in different places. In soft soils, precautions must be taken to stop the disc cutters from getting clogged. During excavation in hard rock, such as granite, the disc cutters must pass the absolute hardness test.
The correct steel mixture and an exact work process are of crucial importance in the materials composition and production of the disc cutters. The high-alloy tool steel of the cutting ring must not only be very hard to resist wear, the material toughness is also an important factor for its lifetime. Excessively brittle steel would lead to early material spalling at the cutting ring during rock bursts, which happen occasionally. Excavation tools up to 8 inches for smaller excavation diameters are also made of high-alloy tool steel.
In addition to the geology, limited space at the cutterhead and the maximum possible load on the disc cutter bearings are also crucial factors when choosing the appropriate tool size. A wide range of cutting knives, buckets, rippers and other tools complement the spectrum for operations in loose soils. With respect to these types of tools, the durability and material composition are also key factors in optimizing time and costs. The durability of the excavation tool edges and/or teeth is improved enormously by soldering carbide metal – tungsten carbide. Depending on the geology, cutting knives, buckets and rippers are given a welded hardfacing on the tool body to protect it against abrasive soil paste.
