N2 - Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs) have been developed, which can offer certain properties that metals or alloys alone cannot give. An example of one of these materials is the aluminium/silicon (Al/Si) composite. This material possesses good thermal conductivity, with thermal expansion matching capabilities that can be "tuned" by varying the quantity of silicon in the composite. It also exhibits a very high stiffness-resistance to elastic deformation. Whilst it is relatively easy to machine, it does require very sharp carbide tools. Alternatively, the material may be readily machined using Electro-Discharge Machining (EDM). This paper examines the use of EDM to rapidly form a tool insert from a MMC with a Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) of 11ppm, the same as that of tool steel used for bolsters.
