Greenleaf’s WG-300, WG-600 and WG-700 whisker-reinforced ceramic inserts are designed for machining high-strength alloy materials and turbine machining operations. The inserts are said to be heat-, wear- and impact-resistant and to provide maximum predictable metal removal rates.
 
WG-300 is said to increase productivity in machining jet engine components made of heat-resistant, high-strength alloy materials. WG-600 expands the speed envelope of WG-300 with the same feed rates, further increasing productivity. Its whisker-reinforced, coated ceramic is well-suited for applications requiring extended tool life. WG-700 is well-suited for machining hot section materials for jet engines. Featuring an optimized base material and a new, nano-layered coating, this insert is designed to machine super alloys such as Inco 718 at greater feeds and speeds than WG-300 or WG-600, the company says.

  • Successful Application Of Ceramic Inserts

    Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Inserts For Difficult Materials

    Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
