Paper Title:
Investigation of the Machining Behavior of Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) Using Chip Formation Simulation
  Abstract

The machining of metal matrix composites (MMC) induces cyclic loadings on tools, which creates new challenges for machining. In particular the distributed reinforcement, consisting of silicon carbide (SiC) or aluminum oxide (Al2O3), evokes especially high mechanical loads. The development of metal matrix composites is pointing towards higher fractions of reinforcements, which affects the resulting forces and temperatures. In this regard the influence of varying particle filling degrees, particle diameters, cutting velocities and tool geometries in terms of rake angle and cutting edge radius have been investigated by means of cutting simulation. For the process a self-designed continuous remeshing routine was used for which a dual phase material behavior has been implemented. The developed simulation model enables investigations of the machining behavior of metal matrix composites to the extent that ideal process strategies and tool geometries can be identified by multiple simulations.
