Paper Title:
The Cutting Behavior of Diamond Coated Tool in Machining Al-20wt%Si Alloy
  Abstract

The performance of CVD diamond coated cemented carbide cutting tool in comparison with K10 uncoated cemented carbide tool in the dry turning of Al-20wt%Si aluminum-silicon hypereutectic alloy was investigated. The obtained results showed a better cutting performance for CVD diamond coated tool in machining Al-20wt%Si, particularly in terms of cutting force, tool wear, surface roughness, when compared with K10. The cutting forces are lower with CVD diamond coated tool and the depth of cut promotes a great increment of the cutting force. The tool wear processes taking place in the tool tips in all cutting conditions. The tool life of CVD diamond coated tool is longer than that of the uncoated K10. The surface roughness Ra increases obviously with the increase of feed rate using a CVD diamond coated cutting tool. A higher feed rate produces surface rougher. The chip morphology in machining of Al-20wt%Si alloy by CVD diamond coated tool is continuous. The tests showed that the CVD diamond coated tool can be applied on the K10 tool at low feed rate to produce high quality surfaces.
