Experimental Study on Wear Mechanism of Cutting Tool and Cutting Temperature in High Speed Machining Superalloy
Two kinds of Cemented carbide tools were used to turn Iron-based superalloy GH2132 at 80m/min-210 m/min under dry cutting condition. Infrared thermometer was used to measure cutting temperature, Tool wear was observed by SEM, and oxygen element distribution of tool surface was analyzed by EDS. Adhesive wear oxidation wear were the main wear mechanisms of the coated cemented carbide tool, Adhesive wear, abrasive were the main wear mechanisms of the carbide tool. Oxidation wear occurs above a certain temperature about 430°C, the higher the temperature the more serious the oxidation wear is. The results might be helpful to guiding the design and selection of tool materials and control of tool wear in high speed machining processes.
