State of the Art of Graded Self-Lubricating Ceramic Cutting Tool Materials
In this paper, the effects of addition of solid lubricants on mechanical properties, tribological properties and cutting performance of ceramic cutting tool materials were analyzed. The problem that existing homogeneous self-lubricating ceramic cutting tool materials were not available to possess rational combination of antifriction and antiwear properties was pointed out. The main methods to acquire graded self-lubricating materials were discussed. The design concept and research prospect of graded self-lubricating ceramic cutting tool materials were proposed, which would have promising applications in the field of high speed cutting.
