Paper Title:
Evaluation of Thrust Forces in Dry Drilling of UNS A97050 Alloy
  Abstract

This paper presents a study of the thrust forces in the aluminium alloy, UNS A97050-T7. The measurement of these forces during the dry drilling in plates is evaluated under cutting different conditions and in through and blind holes. The experiments have been performed in a CNC milling and HSS Co drills have been utilised with unlike diameters (6.3 mm and 4 mm). The thrust forces have been measured by means of a piezoelectric dynamometer. In addition, the results have been compared with theoretical forces, obtained by the Kronenberg equation. The ANOVA study has allowed confirming the similitude between the forces obtained, independently of number of holes drilled, with the exception of through holes of 4 mm, in whose case the Kruskal-Wallis test has corroborated the dissimilitude. Moreover, the comparison with Kronenberg forces is coherent for diameters 6.3 mm, but it is very different for diameter 4 mm. Thus, the results respect to through and blind holes are dependent of diameter of drill, and also the differences found in the theoretical forces. The high variability of the forces for minor drills, in through and blind holes, points to an inadvisable use in this material.
