The Simulation of the Influence of Honed Edge Radius on the Cutting Force and Torque in Drilling 42CrMo with K-Grade Carbide Drill Bit
This paper uses a metal cutting simulation software AdvantEdge FEM as the platform, and simulates the drilling process of three different honed cutting edge K-Grade carbide drills. The aim is to study the influence of different magnitude of honed cutting edge on the the cutting force and torque. According to the simulation, the z-axis force and torque increase while the margin of the fluctuation decrease with the honed edge radius increase. In this paper, the z-axis force and torque reach the maximum and the margin of fluctuation in the smallest when using the honed edge radius of 0.10mm.
