Machining Cutting action involves shear deformation of work material to form a chip As chip is removed, new surface is exposed Figure 21.2 (a) A cross‑sectional view of the machining process, (b) tool with negative rake angle; compare with positive rake angle in (a).

Orthogonal Cutting Model Simplified 2-D model of machining that describes the mechanics of machining fairly accurately Figure 21.6 Orthogonal cutting: (a) as a three‑dimensional process.

to r tc where r chip thickness ratio; to thickness of the chip prior to chip formation; and tc chip thickness after separation Chip thickness after cut always greater than before, so chip ratio always less than 1.0

Based on the geometric parameters of the orthogonal model, the shear plane angle can be determined as: r cos tan 1 r sin where r chip ratio, and rake angle

Discontinuous chip 2. Continuous chip 3. Continuous chip with Built-up Edge (BUE) 4. Serrated chip 1.

Discontinuous Chip Brittle work materials Low cutting speeds Large feed and depth of cut High tool‑chip friction Figure 21.9 Four types of chip formation in metal cutting: (a) discontinuous

Continuous Chip Ductile work materials High cutting speeds Small feeds and depths Sharp cutting edge Low tool‑chip friction Figure 21.9 (b) continuous

Continuous with BUE Ductile materials Low‑to‑medium cutting speeds Tool-chip friction causes portions of chip to adhere to rake face BUE forms, then breaks off, cyclically Figure 21.9 (c) continuous with built‑up edge

Serrated Chip Semicontinuous - saw-tooth appearance Cyclical chip forms with alternating high shear strain then low shear strain Associated with difficult-tomachine metals at high cutting speeds Figure 21.9 (d) serrated.

Vector addition of F and N resultant R Vector addition of Fs and Fn resultant R' Forces acting on the chip must be in balance: › R' must be equal in magnitude to R › R’ must be opposite in direction to R › R’ must be collinear with R

Coefficient of friction between tool and chip: F N Friction angle related to coefficient of friction as follows: tan

The most important geometry’s to consider on a cutting tool are › Back Rake Angles › End Relief Angles › Side Relief Angles

Small to medium rake angles cause: › high compression › high tool forces › high friction › result Thick—highly deformed—hot chips

Larger positive rake angles › Reduce compression and less chance of a discontinuous chip › Reduce forces › Reduce friction › Result A thinner, less deformed, and cooler chip.

Problems .as we increase the angle: › Reduce strength of tool › Reduce the capacity of the tool to conduct heat away from the cutting edge. › To increase the strength of the tool and allow it to conduct heat better, in some tools, zero to negative rake angles are used.

Typical tool materials which utilize negative rakes are: Carbide Diamonds Ceramics These materials tend to be much more brittle than HSS but they hold superior hardness at high temperatures. The negative rake angles transfer the cutting forces to the tool which help to provide added support to the cutting edge.

Positive rake angles › Reduced cutting forces › Smaller deflection of work, tool holder, and › › › › machine Considered by some to be the most efficient way to cut metal Creates large shear angle, reduced friction and heat Allows chip to move freely up the chip-tool zone Generally used for continuous cuts on ductile materials which are not to hard or brittle

Negative rake angles › Initial shock of work to tool is on the face of the tool and not on the point or edge. This prolongs the life of the tool. › Higher cutting speeds/feeds can be employed

Factors to consider for tool angles › The hardness of the metal › Type of cutting operation › Material and shape of the cutting tool › The strength of the cutting edge

Most commonly used cutting fluids › Either aqueous based solutions or cutting oils Fall into three categories › Cutting oils › Emulsifiable oils › Chemical (synthetic) cutting fluids 35

Two classifications › Active › Inactive Terms relate to oil's chemical activity or ability to react with metal surface › Elevated temperatures › Improve cutting action › Protect surface 36

Those that will darken copper strip immersed for 3 hours at temperature of 212ºF Dark or transparent Better for heavy-duty jobs Three categories › Sulfurized mineral oils › Sulfochlorinated mineral oils › Sulfochlorinated fatty oil blends 37

Oils will not darken copper strip immersed in them for 3 hours at 212ºF Contained sulfur is natural › Termed inactive because sulfur so firmly attached to oil – very little released Four general categories › Straight mineral oils, fatty oils, fatty and mineral oil blends, sulfurized fattymineral oil blend 38

Mineral oils containing soaplike material that makes them soluble in water and causes them to adhere to workpiece Emulsifiers break oil into minute particles and keep them separated in water › Supplied in concentrated form (1-5 /100 water) Good cooling and lubricating qualities Used at high cutting speeds, low cutting pressures 39

Also called synthetic fluids Introduced about 1945 Stable, preformed emulsions › Contain very little oil and mix easily with water Extreme-pressure (EP) lubricants added › React with freshly machined metal under heat and pressure of a cut to form solid lubricant Reduce heat of friction and heat caused by plastic deformation of metal 40

Good rust control 2. Resistance to rancidity for long periods of time 3. Reduction of amount of heat generated during cutting 4. Excellent cooling qualities 1. 41

5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Longer durability than cutting or soluble oils Nonflammable - nonsmoking Nontoxic? Easy separation from work and chips Quick settling of grit and fine chips so they are not recirculated in cooling system No clogging of machine cooling system due to detergent action of fluid Can leave a residue on parts and tools 42

Chemical cutting fluids widely accepted and generally used on ferrous metals. They are not recommended for use on alloys of magnesium, zinc, cadmium, or lead. They can mar machine's appearance and dissolve paint on the surface. 43

Prime functions › Provide cooling › Provide lubrication Other functions › Prolong cutting-tool life › Provide rust control › Resist rancidity 44

Heat has definite bearing on cutting-tool wear › Small reduction will greatly extend tool life Two sources of heat during cutting action › Plastic deformation of metal Occurs immediately ahead of cutting tool Accounts for 2/3 to 3/4 of heat › Friction from chip sliding along cutting-tool face 45

Water most effective for reducing heat by will promote oxidation (rust) Decrease the temperature at the chiptool interface by 50 degrees F, and it will increase tool life by up to 5 times. 46

Reduces friction between chip and tool face › Shear plane becomes shorter › Area where plastic deformation occurs correspondingly smaller Extreme-pressure lubricants reduce amount of heat-producing friction EP chemicals of synthetic fluids combine chemically with sheared metal of chip to form solid compounds (allow chip to slide) 47

Heat and friction prime causes of cutting-tool breakdown Reduce temperature by as little as 50ºF, life of cutting tool increases fivefold Built-up edge › Pieces of metal weld themselves to tool face › Becomes large and flat along tool face, effective rake angle of cutting tool decreased 50

Built-up edge keeps breaking off and re-forming Result is poor surface finish, excessive flank wear, and cratering of tool face 51

Water best and most economical coolant › Causes parts to rust Rust is oxidized iron Chemical cutting fluids contain rust inhibitors › Polar film › Passivating film 53

Rancidity caused by bacteria and other microscopic organisms, growing and eventually causing bad odors to form Most cutting fluids contain bactericides that control growth of bacteria and make fluids more resistant to rancidity 54

Cutting-tool life and machining operations influenced by way cutting fluid applied Copious stream under low pressure so work and tool well covered › Inside diameter of supply nozzle ¾ width of cutting tool › Applied to where chip being formed 55

Another way to cool chip-tool interface Effective, inexpensive and readily available Used where dry machining is necessary Uses compressed air that enters vortex generation chamber › Cooled 100ºF below incoming air Air directed to interface and blow chips away 56
