CeramTec SPK® Cutting Tools
Back in the 50s, CeramTec introduced the first SPK® cutting ceramics for machining cast iron, the legendary RK 1. Ever since, they have been developing new grades such as oxide, mixed and silicon nitride ceramics and moving into new fields of application. With coatings, Cermets and polycrystalline boron nitride WURBON®, they have rounded off the range of cutting materials for high-performance machining.
CeramTec?s SPK® cutting materials permit the use of cutting and machining speeds that are not achievable with other tool materials. Given appropriate operating conditions and an application technology adapted to the SPK® product's characteristics, these CeramTec materials have the potential for enhancing productivity and process reliability in industrial machining environments.
