Bidemics is a new proprietary group of advanced composite cutting tool materials that was specially developed for machining High Temp Alloys like INCO718. Bidemics can provide companies that machine High Temp Alloys with the potential to increase machining capacity without investing in new machinery. Key benefits are: high speed capability, superior surface finishes and longer tool life potential.
The discussion will include information on the two new grades of Bidemics which have been developed. The first grade is “JX1”, a solid geometry for all non-scale machining. The second grade is “JP2”, a coated multi-tipped brazed grade for semi-finishing and finishing applications. Learn how these new materials relate to current Whisker, SiAION and CBN materials currently being used in machining Hi-Temp Nickel Alloys.
