CONVENTIONAL ABRASIVES SUBSTITUTED BY SUPER ABRASIVES
Conventional abrasives used in grinding and cutting tools are silicon carbide, corundum, aluminum oxide and so on. Tools with vitrified bonds are made with feldspar, clays and other fusible materials. The steps in conventional machining techniques for finishing requires grinding and for some manufacturing process electrical discharge machining. Pink aluminum oxide, white aluminum oxide, zirconia, silicon carbide, ceramic aluminum oxide and aluminum oxide/silicon carbide mix (AC) are used for manufacturing and regrinding of cutting tools, such as drills, milling cutters, reamers and so on. Super abrasives, such as diamond and CBN tools, have been growing in usage and demand since 1985. These tools are also easily automated with CNC machine tools with latest profiling and cutting techniques. The use of super abrasives is increasing and its higher usage in different end-user industries such as automotive, medical (dental tools and others), aerospace, cutting, non-ferrous metals, stone, ceramic materials, oil & gas exploration and so on.
Turbines Application to Grow Higher
The global super abrasives market in the turbines application segment is growing at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast (2018 - 2023). Super abrasives are used in turbojets for an aircraft and stationary turbines, to produce energy. CBN and diamond abrasives are used in turbine blades and turbine blade ends, respectively. The trend in the turbine technology is to develop more economic, efficient and eco-friendly engines. Research activities have been carried out to achieve such technological advancements by increasing a number of high performance materials in turbine assemblies. Annular grooves are found on the outer diameter of the compressor assembly. Annular grooves are formed in a creep feed grinding process, while the casing is held firmly on a rotary table. Highly accurate geometry is required to achieve gas tightness at the blade tips. Electroplated tools are used extensively in such operations.
China to Lead the Market
Super abrasives is one of the major markets in China, owing to the high manufacturing activities by the numerous end-user industries. The supply of super abrasives in the country is maintained by both the domestic and global players.
The aerospace industry in the Republic of China is growing rapidly as the Chinese Aerospace Policy presents its strong intention to reach at the top in the aerospace production and development. The growth is further supported by the country’s defense budget, which is increasing significantly, each year. The country’s defense budget is more than the combined defense budget of the entire Asia-Pacific. Moreover, the country’s objective for 12% annual expansion in the civil aircraft sector over the next decade is expected to drive the growth of the super abrasives market.
