SPK® Whitepaper: “Milling Cast Iron Materials with Ceramic, PcBN and
Cermet Cutting Materials”

SPK® Whitepaper „Fräsen von Gusseisenwerkstoffen mit Keramik, PcBN und Cermet Schneidstoffen“

Milling with cutting materials made of ceramic, PcBN and cermets has been an accepted machining technology for years. Modern ceramic cutting materials and HPC insert milling cutters are now able to offer maximum performance and process reliability in a single, convenient package. However, practical use shows that milling with carbide inserts remains the primary field of application and is often the reason why many users forgo essential technical and economic benefits in spite of all these systems have to offer. The SPK® Whitepaper “Milling Cast Iron Materials with Ceramic, PcBN and Cermet Cutting Materials” deals with this topic and details the best methods of face milling cast iron components together with the right milling body using ceramic, PcBN and cermet inserts. It covers subjects such as milling different cast iron materials (CGI, ADI, etc.), cutting parameters for ceramic cutting materials, PcBN and cermets and the milling application method in depth.

Milling with SPK® ceramic cutting materials offers outstanding potential in productivity and cost-cutting at high process reliability. According to the machining requirements and the workpiece situation, SPK® provides milling systems with negative or positive insert geometries – either with wedge or center hole clamping. Milling systems with height adjustable insert seats have a particularly wide application range. Thereby a large number of fast and precise face milling tasks can be performed. SPK® milling tools can be equipped with different coated and uncoated inserts depending on the task at hand.
