Milling different materials TON Coromant

Ceramic milling typically runs at 20 to 30 times the speed of carbide, although at lower feed rates (~0.1 mm/z (0.0039 in/z)), which results in high productivity gains. Due to intermittent cutting, it is a much cooler operation than turning. For this reason, speeds of 700–1,000 m/min (2,297–3,280 ft/min) are adopted for milling, compared to

Machining of ceramics [SubsTech]

Jun 01, 2012 Sintered ceramics are very hard and therefore their machining is an expensive, difficult and time consuming process. Ceramic parts may be effectively machined before the final sintering stage either in the “green” (non-sintered powder) compact state or in the presintered “bisque” state.
