Modelling of the Deburring Process


Article Preview

Due to robotic deburring development, the research gains a new orientation and focused on the cutting forces and the chip control. The present paper will emphasize the main difference which occurs between the normal cutting process and the deburring process, the way it develops and the parameters which characterize this process. Also the dynamics of the process are considered. Based on a central composite design one determine a relation between the geometry of the tool, workpiece hardness and cutting force.
