The Force and Wear of Carbide Mill in Milling Glass


Article Preview

The force and wear of carbide ball-end mill when quartz glass is milled in the dry state has been studied. Cutting experiments have been investigated for different cutting parameters. The relationship between milling force and cutting conditions has been analyzed. Mechanism and patterns of tool wear has also been studied. A group of reasonable milling parameters have been achieved to mill quartz glass using carbide ball-end mill and tool wear can be delayed in the selected group of cutting parameters.
