Machining of Heat Resistant Super Alloys

Cutting materials play a decisive role in the machining of components made of nickel-based alloys. That is why, in addition to our whisker ceramics, we also offer you our SiAlON cutting materials for turning, grooving and milling. Because SiAlON cutting materials are an excellent economical and process-safe alternative for machining heat-resistant nickel-based superalloys with high cutting values in a process-safe manner.

Would you like to test the performance of our SiAlON cutting materials?

Machining Hard Materials

The advantage lies in the variety! That is why we offer CBN inserts for hard turning both as corner-tipped inserts and as solid inserts. If you combine the application possibilities of solid and corner-tipped inserts, new machining possibilities arise for hard turning, which enable faster machining with the best surface quality at the same time. Even more possibilities open up for you when our mixed ceramics are used as an alternative cutting material in hard turning. 

Want to find out what solid and corner-tipped CBN inserts or our mixed ceramics can do for you?

Roll Machining

Our two grades of cutting material, ceramic and CBN, are ideal for roll turning and profiling. But we also have a lot to offer on the tooling side, from single, multi-bladed and multi-stage turning tools to tools with long overhangs for deep grooving, to make machining your rolls simpler and easier.

If you do not want to worry about the cutting thickness h and do not want to design the cutting alone - contact us!

Success lies in the implementation of the machining task

When we talk to our customers, we hear again and again: I am not achieving my number of pieces in the shift because the tool life has collapsed. I am not achieving the required productivity with the cutting parameters of the tool used. Or the quality requirements are difficult to fulfil with the tool, so that the calculation for machining is no longer correct.

If such or similar problems occur, an identical insert made of a different cutting material is often simply used for machining. This is based on the assumption that the problem is solved. All other possibilities to improve the machining process are disregarded. This is where the machining experts from CeramTec come into play, who look at the entire machining process. Do chamfer design, insert geometry, cutting material fit the requirements? Do cutting parameters need to be adjusted, does the number of cutting passes need to be changed, or do special tools provide the solution? These are just a few measures from the spectrum of engineering that the CeramTec engineering team has in store - and on site at the customer, worldwide. Because the consideration of the most important influencing variables, as carried out by the CeramTec engineering team, brings the desired success in machining.
