Why are Sialon ceramics so effective at high-speed machining of heat resistant alloys?
Silicon nitride (Si3N4) is combined with Aluminum (Al) and oxygen (O) to make SiAlON.
Sialon has needle-shaped particles similar to that of Silicon nitride.
The arrangement of these particles makes the material withstand the impact force during cutting.
The addition of the alumina improves its heat resistance characteristics.
The property advantages makes it perfect for machining heat resistant alloys.
Machining Inconel with scale
|Ring (Roughing with scale)
- High feed rate is possible because of SX5's toughness.
It achieved 2.5 times more efficient results compared to the competitor's whisker.
|Aircraft part (Roughing with scale)
(competitor's Sialon ceramic)
1 pass Chipping
- SX5 insert had more stable performance and no edge chipping compared to the competitor's Sialon grade.
