Surface Roughness and Cutting Force of Inconel 718 Machined by Different Cutting Tools
Given the stringent operating conditions to which super alloys are subjected to in aerospace, nuclear power and gas turbine industries, their efficient machining and generation of machined surfaces with high integrity assumes a lot of importance. Therefore, this paper presents an experimental investigation on the surface roughness and cutting force of Inconel 718 machined with several different kinds of cutting tools. Both single-factor and orthogonal experiments were carried out with cemented carbide, cermet and CBN tools. The effects of cutting tools and cutting parameters on the surface roughness and cutting force are investigated and the optimal cutting conditions are recommended.
