Term Main definition

CBN is an abbreviation for 'Cubic Boron Nitride' which is one of the hardest materials. Due to its hardness and very low wear rate the material is suitable as a cutting material. This allows a high degree of shape accuracy and dimensional accuracy to be achieved even with hard materials.

Cemented carbide

Cemented carbide is a material consisting of fine carbide particles and a binder metal. The advantages of cemented carbide include its high hardness and low wear rate. Cemented carbides are often used as cutting tool material for example in indexable inserts. Since they are particularly temperature-resistant which allows for with higher cutting speeds.

Chassis & steering

The chassis comprises all the components of a vehicle that create a connection with the road surface. These include the wheels wheel carriers brakes suspension and steering. Steering refers to all vehicle equipment used to change the direction of movement. In conventional vehicles steering devices are often used for this purpose which transmit a movement from the steering wheel via the steering column to the chassis.

Compressor blade

The compressor is one of the main components in a gas turbine. The compressor blade is a rotating blade on the disc of a compressor. It adds energy to air by increasing its pressure and density as it moves in the engine. Compressor blades are made of special steel alloys or materials that do not deform even under high loads and at elevated temperatures.
