Machining Behavior of Green RBSC Body Prepared by Gel-Casting
In this paper, the green RBSC was prepared by gel casting process. The influences of the monomer content (MBAM and AM) and monomer ratio (MBAM to AM) on the flexural strength were investigated. The results indicated the flexural strength of green body was up to 8MPa and the micro- structures were homogeneous. The green RBSC bodies were machined by CNC grinding machine with diamond-coated grinding tools. Machining tests showed the green component could be machined without appended defects. It was found that green machining as a ‘top-down’ approach was a potential alternative for the rapid fabrication of complex-shaped ceramics, especially for some one-of-a-kind products.
