I read that ceramic cutters are 8-25 times faster then tungsten carbide. Ceramic knives sure are faster at cutting food, but would it also be 8 times faster at cutting wood?
You can get carbide router bits capable of cutting wood over 2500ipm. I don't really think you need to go 8 times faster than that. If you need to cut faster, all you really need is a bigger spindle and more rigid machine. Most people don't really realize how fast wood can actually be cut with standard woodworking tooling.
