Research and Development of New Ceramic Cutting Tools
Li Jianbao Huang Yong (Department of Materials Science & Engineering ,Tsinghua University)
The improvement of the quality of industrial steels and irons made their machining more difficult and new ceramic materials with high hardness and strength at elevated temperature have been expected to be developed and used gradually for cutting tools. This review introduce essential ceramic cutting tools and compare their material properties and machining behaviors. A new kind of ceramic cutting tool reinforced by sic whisker has been reported.
