Cemented Oxides . . . Where, When and How to Apply 650111

Cemented oxide cutting tool material (commonly called ceramic) has a place in the total machining effort. Its high hardness, abrasion resistance, low heat conductivity, and inert nature make it particularly well suited to some chip forming applications.
Compared to carbide, since cemented oxide is low in strength, shear, and tension, certain design and application considerations are mandatory if this type of material is to be used successfully. Some of these considerations are discussed.
