A new generation of cutting tools based on functionally graded sialons for solving the machining problems of the 21. century (FGMSIATOOL)

Objective

New ceramic tool materials on the basis of Silicon Nitride/Oxide ("Sialons") with a tough core should be developed, to allow a significantly higher performance in machining, in particular for "heavy-to-machine-parts". Together with the inserts to be developed, characterized and tested, a suitable cutting technique is to be found with the end-users. Two research centers (Austria and Ireland) will collaborate with two European end-users (Italy), one Czech industrial specialist for ceramics, and one SME (Ireland) which will assist with computer simulation. The output should enable the European machining industry to increase and speed up the production combined with saving of resources and should benefit for health and environment.
