Paper Title:
Theoretical and Experimental Research on Tapping of GH4169 and TC4 with Modified-Tooth Taps
  Abstract

Based on the theoretical principle of tapping formation and simulation with modified-tooth tap, the relationship among the different geometric parameters of the tap was further analyzed. A series of modified-tooth taps and standard ones with a cutting cone angle of 7°30´and a outer diameter of M6, which were made from high-speed steel W9, were taken to do the comparative tapping test on nickel-based high-temperature alloy GH4169, titanium alloy TC4 and 45 steel. The test results indicated that the leading cause of difficult tapping in GH4169 and TC4 was the largeness of their friction torques which were about 35 % and 62 % of tapping torque respectively, where the frictional wear was a fundamental reason for tough tapping GH4169 and the spring back of machined surface for TC4.The obvious decreases of friction torque with the modified-tooth tap approximately 70% and 50% respectively for GH4169 and TC4 were attributed to its unique tapping formation principle of generating broaching but no remarkable effects on 45 steel in comparison with standard tap.
