The Influence of Feed per Tooth Variation on Surface Roughness of 7136 Aluminum Alloy in End Milling


Article Preview

This paper fits into an experimental researches complex, regarding the surface roughness dependency on the cutting parameters of 7136 aluminum alloy machining. The purpose of this paper is to identify by experiments the influence of feed per tooth variation on surface roughness. A range of feed per tooth was used while the cutting speed and the cutting depth were constrained per minimum and maximum requirements defined for the given cutting tool. The experiments were conducted on Al7136 because it is a new material and I have identified the need for its use in the aircraft industry.
