In this paper, finite element (FE) simulation for high-speed milling of aluminum alloy was performed using a ductile fracture model with Mohr–Coulomb criterion proposed by Bai and Wierzbicki (BW). To verify the model, predicted cutting forces were compared to experimental results in the same cutting conditions. Then, further simulations were performed to estimate the cutting forces and chip shrinkage coefficients subjected to different cutting parameters such as cutting speeds, cutting depths, a...

Abstract Dry machining is undesirable to produce precision surface due to thermal adversities especially for a low melting point material such as Al 6061-T6. Likewise, the conventional flood cooling is neither economically viable nor eco-friendly. In this context, three novel cooling-lubrication (C/L) technologies namely the nitrogen gas cooling (NGC), nitrogen gas assisted minimum quantity lubrication (NGMQL) and Ranque-Hilsch vortex tube (RHVT) NGMQL are investigated along with the air cooling...

Abstract Ti6Al4V alloy is one of the typically difficult-to-machine materials which is widely used in aerospace industry. During the machining process of Ti6Al4V alloys, serrated chips are easily formed and would influence cutting forces significantly. In this study, the variation of cutting forces of Ti-6Al-4V alloys during high-speed milling from 50–500 m/min is investigated, and the fracture mechanisms and microstructure evolution of chips are analyzed by optical microscope (OM), scan electro...

To study the influences of processes factors on cutting force and vibration in cutting processes, milling tests were carried out on 022Cr17Ni12Mo2 stainless steel under different process conditions using a coated carbide end mill insert. The cutting force and vibration acceleration signals were recorded, and the wear depth on the flank face of the tool was measured. This study observed tool wear morphology using a scanning electron microscope and investigated distributions of surface elements on...

High cutting speed usually gives rise to a breakdown of steady chip flow and results in a serrated flow pattern, which is one of the most fundamental and challenging problems in metal cutting. Here, we systematically analysed the experimental results of high-speed cutting on various typical metallic materials over wide ranges of cutting speeds. With considering the coupling effects of inertial, tool-chip compression and material convection, the critical condition for the onset of serrated chip f...

Abstract The Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian approach (ALE) presents a lot of advantages. However, its use is limited to the cutting with a constant uncut chip thickness h . On the one hand, the previous numerical studies were focused on the prediction of the quasi-stationary response for cutting forces and heat transfer along the tool rake face. But on the other hand, in the industrial machining processes, as milling operations, the removal of the material from the workpiece varies with time. The...

Abstract High–speed machining (HSM) is widely used in the manufacturing of monolithic aluminum components for automotive and aeronautical industries. However, previous research studies on HSM of high strength aluminum alloys have shown that serrated and/or elemental chips can form at critical cutting conditions, impacting the machining stability and final parts quality. Hence, understanding the physical mechanisms governing the chip serration is essential to improve HSM part quality especially w...

The distribution characteristics of machining errors in high energy efficiency milling are an important index to evaluate the surface geometry parameters, cutting stability, and dynamic cutting efficiency. The existing methods for machining errors focus on the overall level of the parameters of a machined surface and the degree of deviation from the index and ignore the influence of the instantaneous cutting behavior of a milling cutter and its teeth on the dynamic formation process of a machine...
To produce the lightweight material for the high payload with excellent strength in particular for defense applications, reinforcements were introduced into the aluminum to form a hybrid composite. SiO2 was extracted through suitable techniques from rice husk ash particles. Through the ultrasonic probe sonication stir-casting process, the standard composition of 3% SiO2 was added along with varying weight percentages (3, 6, 9, and 12) of TiC particles as reinforcement in Al 6061 matrix. The mach...

Tandem-pulsed gas metal arc welding (TP-GMAW) simultaneously uses two wire-electrodes to enhance the material deposition rate, leading to the generation of a finger-shaped penetration as one of the arcs penetrates deeper than the other. On the other hand, workpiece vibration is one of the techniques used to control the microstructure of weld metal and a heat-affected zone. It is incidentally found that a specific vibration condition changes the finger-shaped penetration into pan-bottom shaped pe...
