Ceramic inserts are capable of running at high speeds, thus reducing expensive machining time. Hard turning of 38HRC to 64HRC hardened steel, or rough to finish turning of cast iron are recommended applications for ceramic inserts. KYOCERA’s ceramic grades are designed to resist oxidation and maintain hardness at elevated temperatures.
- Application: Finishing of cast iron at high cutting speeds without coolant
- Excellent wear resistance for high cutting speeds
- Ceramic maintains good surface finishes due to the low affinity to workpiece materials
