Electrical Current at Metal Cutting Process: A Literature Review
Processing metallic materials by cutting using good electricity conductor cutting edges it appears an electrical current due mainly to the temperature in the cutting zone. Analyzing of the electrical current the information about the unfolding mode of the cutting process can be obtained. The cutting electrical current can be used in several applications: the estimation of the temperature in the cutting zone, the estimation of the cutting forces, the identification of the wear state of the cutting edge etc. The first researches were started in Russia and they were based on the utilization of the cutting electrical current to measure the temperature in the cutting zone. Afterwards, other applications were identified in the literature and the researches were extended in other countries like India, Japan, USA, Brazil, France, Bangladesh and Romania. This paper presents a review of the researches about the electrical current which appears at cutting process.
