Experimental Analysis of Cutter Engagement during High Speed End Milling of H13


Article Preview

The aim of the present study is to investigate the influence of cutter engagement on cutting forces in end milling process of AISI H13 (48 HRc). The experiments were carried out on CNC vertical machining center. The machining conditions are as follows: Vc = 150, 200 and 250 m/min, fz = 0.05, 0.1 and 0.15 mm/tooth; a = 0.1, 0.15 and 0.2 mm for every cutting process. Central Composite Design with 20 runs was employed. Data analysis showed that cutter engagement influence the cutting force for the end milling process of hard material H13 in the same pattern to the similar experiment of different material. The present study of cutter engagement will be useful in tool path creation which is important for mold and die machining. The cutter engagement study related to cutting force in high speed end milling of AISI H13 has not yet been established. This study will help the NC programmers in choosing the suitable tool path that will give stable, productive, and more efficient milling process
