Glass ceramic (K2O-MgF2-MgO-SiO2) was found to have relatively good machinability that is restricted within a very limited range of machine settings. The microstructure of glass ceramic has had significant influence on the machining capabilities. Tool geometry, tool composition, and the machining environment influenced cutting forces, workpiece surface quality, and tool life.
