The Cutting Simulation of Inconel 718
The chemical composition and properties of nickel-based superalloy Inconel 718 was investigated first. Turning Inconel 718 was simulated by Deform-3D software to figure out main affection factors, and optimal combination of cutting speed, feed rate and cutting depth was introduced. In addition, different cooling and Lubrication methods (heat transfer coefficient f of cooling and tool-chip friction factors) for cutting of Inconel 718 was studied, and a best cooling/lub mode was obtained.
