(Xenia, OH) specializes in designing and generating precision carbide and carbide-tipped, ceramic, cermets, PCD--the more advanced materials used in tools that high-speed machine tools are designed to utilize.
It is found that the protection of the cermet surface is possible through the formation of the tribolayer based on entrapping of abrasive particles (4.a and 4.b modes).
High cutting speeds, high feed rates and internal cooling are suitable for cermet reamer.
