DDS300 Whisker Reinforced Ceramic Inserts -
is a whisker reinforced aluminum oxide ceramic insert with
excellent wear and shock resistance at high surface speeds.
Aluminum oxide ceramicís melting point (3,700 F) is much
higher than sintered carbide, which means it can be used at
higher surface speeds. Turning is the most ideal operation
for DDS300. It is a continuous machining process that
allows a single insert to cut for a long period of time.
This generates high temperatures that make whisker
reinforced ceramic inserts perform optimally. DDS300 is
very effective at machining nickel alloys, aerospace alloys,
and cobalt based super alloys at metal removal rates many
times higher than coated and uncoated carbide.
