Phase-Toughened Ceramics: The Next Revolution in Machining of Heat-Resistant Super Alloys
Published March 2019
As a means of large-scale production, metal machining mostly developed throughout the 19th century, playing a significant role in the second industrial revolution and facilitating the manufacturing boom that fueled the technological expansion of the 20th century [...] Increasing temperatures and stresses in gas turbines (among others) led to the development of nickel- and cobalt-based heat-resistant super alloys (HRSA), and while cemented tungsten carbide tools continued to improve – the rapidly evolving properties of HRSAs meant that carbide machining was, respectively, becoming less and less efficient.
