Summary

This paper discusses the precautions and effects of cutting-edge preparations for ceramic tools. Machining tests indicate that consistent cutting results can be obtained if the edges are not damaged during their edge treatment. The direction of the lays ground onto the chamfer can greatly affect the insert performance. Within the range tested in the experiment, variations in stiffnesses in the tool holder do not seem to influence the wear of the cutting inserts
