1 Optimization of Cutter Life DSES 6070 HV5 Professor Gutierrez-Miravete By: Frank Gibilisco

2 Problem Statement Determine optimal cutter life for diameter RNC end mill exposed to a variety of cutting conditions

3 Assumptions Feed & Speed held constant  Torque controlled machining Operator held constant  Reduce risk of measurement error Each operation will have a failure point  cutter application requires multiple cutters to complete one operation.  Run time is such that replacement is mandatory to reduce risk of damage to part or machine. Cutter Failure Modes 1)Cutter broken 2)Cutter chipped 3)Cutter excessive wear

4 Methodology Data Collection  30 part sample Minitab / Excel  Best-fit distributions Maple  Verify reliability statistics

5 Discussion Best Fit Distribution  Weibull vs. Lognormal  Lognormal is used as a repair distribution  Weibull – general distribution with many applications Reliability Statistics  MTTF: min  Shape:  Scale:

6 Results Maple Calculations  Verified Minitab data using shape/scale parameters from Minitab  MRL min) = 28.7 min Interpretation  MTTF: min  Consider increasing cutter time limit on machine  Potential savings ($30000 per year) with process improvements Baseline cutters ordered per year $220 per cutter Plot of Survival Function (R)

7 Conclusions Reliability  MTTF > time limits set by experience  Torque value – limited effect Next steps  Determine effects of changing torque values to utilize available horsepower on machine  Determine effect of new vs. regrind cutters on optimal cutter life / business strategy
