Paper Title:
A Method to Reduce Milling Time for Ti-6Al-4V Alloy for Controlled Depth Milling Using Abrasive Water Jet Machining
  Abstract

This Abrasive Water Jet Machining (AWJM) process is usually used to through cut materials which are difficult to cut by conventional machining processes. This process may also be used for controlled depth milling (CDM) of materials. This work primarily focuses on controlling the abrasive flow rate to reduce the time for machining the component. Here, an experimental setup is made with a modified attachment for abrasive feed system to machine for Ti-6Al-4V alloy. The work also investigates the surface morphology, tolerance on depth of machining and surface waviness for the modified setup. With change in mass flow rate of abrasive, the traverse speed is altered and its effects on the machining time are studied. It is observed that traverse speed is an important parameter in the case of CDM for AWJM. It is also shown that surface waviness can be reduced as traverse speed is increased by using modified abrasive feeding system.
