CHAPTER (3) Metal Cutting and Cutting Tools Dr. Ahmed Abou El-Wafa

2 Clearance necessary to allow cutting to take place.
3.1 Clearance Angle: The clearance angle may be defined as the angle between the flank face of the tool and a tangent to the work surface originating at the cutting edge. F Leading edge (a) Heel fouls work & prevents leading edge from entering. P (b) Heel cleared a way allowing leading edge to enter the work. F P Clearance angle : 6-8º Clearance necessary to allow cutting to take place.

3 Effect of workpiece shape on the clearance angle.
Primary Clearance angle Secondary Clearance angle (b) Internal cylinder (a) External cylinder P F Clearance angle : 5-7º Effect of workpiece shape on the clearance angle. An excessive clearance angle will not increase efficiency and will merely weaken the tool.

4 Tool angles showing the rake angle.
The rake angle is the angle between the top face of the tool and the normal to the work surface at the cutting edge. Chip Rake angle positive Tool angles showing the rake angle. Although increasing the rake angle improves the cutting action, it tends to weaken the tool. Therefore, the choice of a suitable rake angle becomes a compromise between adequate strength of tool and good cutting action. - Generally, for work materials that give a continuous chip, the greater the work-material strength, the smaller the rake angle.

5 3.3 Chip Formation 3.3.1 Types of chips Ductile materials: e.g. st.
Brittle materials: e.g. C I With BUE -Tool-chip friction causes portions of chip to adhere to rake face - BUE forms, then breaks off, cyclically Associated with difficult-to-machine metals at high cutting speeds Serrated chip

6 3.3.2 Chip breakers

7 Features of a single point cutting tool.
3.4 Single Point Cutting Tools 3.4.1 The straight-edge cutting tool Section B-B at 90º to cutting edge Features of a single point cutting tool.

8 3.4.2 The parting-off tool Such a tool must be set on or very slightly above the center, but never below center, or the work will climb on top of the tool just before it is parted off. The tool is naturally rather weak and can easily be broken if this happens.

9 3.4.3 Tool setting Effect of tool setting.
(b) Tool below center. Work tends to climb over tool. (a) Tool above center. Tool tends to rub. (c) Tool on center but inclined upward at front. Tool rubs. (d) Tool on center but inclined downward at front. Work tends to drag tool in. Effect of tool setting.

10 3.5 Multi-Point Cutting Tools
3.5.1 Reamers The clearance angle of reamer is very small. A reamer must obviously not be ground on its clearance faces or its size will be destroyed, and it is ground on its rake faces, i.e., along its flutes.

11 Calculation of drill size required for producing M48x3 thread;
3.5.2 Taps Example 3.1: Calculation of drill size required for producing M48x3 thread; Depth of thread = 0.54*pitch = 0.54*3 = 1.62 mm. 90% depth of thread = 1.62*0.9 = 1.46 mm. Tapping size = 48-(2*1.46) = mm diameter. - The next convenient drill size above this should be used. A tap.

12 3.6 Copying and Generating Processes
- Copying process: in this process the surface is dependent for its shape on the shape of the cutter, (as an example form tools). W.P Tool - Generating process: in this process the surface is independent on the shape of the tool, but depends on the relative motions of work and tool.

13 3.7 Cutting Fluids 3.7.1 Types of cutting fluids Water
A poor lubricant, has little wetting action, it also encourages rusting and is suitable only as a coolant during tool grinding. (2) Soluble Oils With water, they form an intimate mixture, or emulsion, by adding emulsifying agents. While the oil prevents rusting, it is suitable for light cutting operations, i.e. low metal removal rates. (3) Mineral Oils They are suitable for heavier cutting operations, i.e. high metal removal rates, because of their much better lubricating properties. Sulfur compounds are added to prevent the chip welding to the rake face and forming BUE. They should not be used on Cu and its alloys since they have corrosive effect on them, but are suitable for steels. (4) Vegetable Oils They are little used since they are liable to decompose and smell, and may become a health hazard.

14 3.7.2 Functions or uses of coolants or cutting fluids
The important functions of cutting fluids are given as follows; (i) Cutting fluid washes away the chips and hence keeps the cutting region free. (ii) It helps in keeping freshly machined surface bright by giving a protective coating against atmospheric, oxygen and thus protects the finished surface from corrosion. (iii) It decreases wear and tear of cutting tool and hence increases tool life. (iv) It improves machinability and reduces power requirements. (v) It prevents expansion of workpieces. (vi) It cools the tool and workpiece and removes the generated heat from the cutting zone. (vii) It decreases adhesion between chip and tool, provides lower friction and wear, and a smaller built-up edge.

19 Calibration Curve

20 3.8.3 Force relationship Where: r = chip thickness ratio (or cutting 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 Where:  = rake angle

21 τ = - Coefficient of friction between tool and chip:
where β is: the friction angle - Shear stress acting along the shear plane: where S is: the shear strength where As is: the shear plane area to is: cut depth w is: cutting edge width, Φ is: shear plane angle τ = - Of all the possible angles at which shear deformation can occur, the work material will select a shear plane angle  that minimizes energy, given by;

22 Fc = Fs cos(β - α) / [cos( + β - α)]
F, N, Fs, and Fn cannot be directly measured The only forces that can be measured are the forces acting on the tool: Cutting force Fc Thrust force Ft - Then; F = Fc sin + Ft cos N = Fc cos ‑ Ft sin Fs = Fc cos ‑ Ft sin Fn = Fc sin + Ft cos - From Merchant circle: Fc = Fs cos(β - α) / [cos( + β - α)] Ft = Fs sin(β - α) / [cos( + β - α)] Shear Strain:  = tan( - ) + cot  -

23 Power calculations - Power is force times speed: Pc = Fc v (hp or kW)
Where: v is the cutting speed - The cutting horsepower is hpc = Fc v / 33, (hp) 1 kW = 1.34 hp - Due to efficiency losses (η about 90%), the gross horsepower (hpg) required is; hpg = hpc / η - The unit horsepower is; hpu = hpc / MRR (hp.min/mm3) Unit power is also known as the specific energy U MRR - Units for specific energy are typically N.m/mm3 or J/mm3 (

24 Example 3.2 In orthogonal machining the tool has rake angle 10°, chip thickness before cut is to = 0.02 in, and chip thickness after cut is tc = in. The cutting and thrust forces are measured at Fc = 350 lb and Ft = 285 lb while at a cutting speed of 200 ft/min. Determine; (a) the machining shear strain, (b) shear stress, and (c) cutting horsepower. SOLUTION (a) (Shear strain): r = 0.02/0.045 = 0.444 Shear plane angle: tan  = r cos  / [1 – r sin ] tan  = cos 10 /[1 – sin 10]  = 25.4° Shear strain:  = tan( - ) + cot   = tan( ) + cot 25.4 = 2.386

25 SOLUTION (cont.) (b) (Shear stress): Shear force: Fs = Fc cos  - Ft sin  Fs = 350 cos sin 25.4 = 194 lb Shear plane area:As = to w / sin  As = (0.02) (0.125)/sin 25.4= in2 The shear stress is τ = 194/ = 33,276 lb/in2 (c) (Cutting horsepower): Cutting hp: hpc = Fc v / 33,000 hpc = (350) (200) / 33,000 = 2.12 hp

3.9 Tool Failure and Tool Life - Tool wear Tool wear (a) Crater wear and (b) Flank wear.

27 2. VBB,max = 0.6 mm, if the flank is irregularly worn, or;
I: Initial wear II: Steady state wear III: Rapid wear The criteria recommended by ISO3685:1993 to define the effective tool life for cemented carbides tools, high-speed steels (HSS) and ceramics are: Cemented carbides: 1. VBB = 0.3 mm, or 2. VBB,max = 0.6 mm, if the flank is irregularly worn, or; HSS and ceramics: 1. Catastrophic failure, or; 2. VBB = 0.3 mm, if the flank is regularly in region B; or 3. VBB,max = 0.6mm, if the flank is irregularly in region B.

28 - Tool life Taylor’s equation: Another form of Taylor’s equation:
Where: V: Cutting speed (m/min.) TL: Tool life (min.) n, C : Constants depend on machining conditions, e.g., feed, depth of cut, coolant, etc.

29 Example 3.3 The outside diameter of a cylinder made of titanium alloy is to be turned. The starting diameter = 500 mm and the length = 1000 mm. Cutting conditions are feed = 0.4 mm/rev and depth of cut = 3.0 mm. The cut will be made with a cemented carbide cutting tool whose Taylor tool life parameter n = 0.23 and C = 400 (m/min). Compute the cutting speed that will allow the tool life to be just equal the cutting time for this part. SOLUTION v TLn = C (1) Cutting time (Tm) = , where: N = (1000 * v) /  D

30 (2) For Tool life (TL) = Cutting time (Tm) i.e., Equating (1) & (2): V = m/min.
