Comparative Analyses on FEM Simulation and Experiment of the Hard Turning Using Chamfered PCBN Tool
In this paper, cutting experiment and FEM simulation are combined to investigate the effect of various chamfered edge geometries on cutting force and cutting temperature distribution when hardened steel GCr15(HRC60+2) is machined with PCBN tool. The research results indicate that radial force and main cutting force increase with the enlargement of chamfer angle, and especially, radial force rises more significantly, but radial force is less than main cutting force during the entire cutting process. Cutting temperature also gradually rises as chamfer angle increases, and moreover, it is maximized on the chip-tool interface in a place of 0.1-0.2mm distant from nose.
