Experimental Study on Profile Machining of Titanium Alloys with Superabrasive Tools


Article Preview

Electroplated profiled superabrasive grinding wheels which integrate both advantages of grinding and profile milling have been widely used in the machining process the wide chord hollow fan blade rabbets made of Ti-6Al-4V alloy. However, the employment of these tools has been impeded by drastic forces and thermal damage. In order to investigate the variation regularities of grinding forces and temperature with different machining parameters, experiments were carried out with single layer electroplated CBN grinding wheels. Grinding forces and temperature were measured and analyzed. Meanwhile, tool life and metallography of workpiece were studied. The results showed that higher spindle speed leads to lower forces and higher temperature. With the increase of feed rate and radial cutting depth, forces and temperature increase. Strong adherence of chips makes abrasives grits blunt which results in the increase of grinding forces after a great deal of tests. Metallographic structure of the machined workpiece is almost identical with the original sample.
