Study on Axial Turning of Engineering Ceramics
Axial turning is a method to cut the cylindrical work piece along its axis, using the kinetic energy of high-speed rotation annularity tool, the abrasives in tool tip (or toes) as the main cutting edge to remove materials and the abrasives in the inner surface of tool as a minor cutting edge to sharpen the processed surface. The cutting thickness and feed rate could be more than 3~5mm and 30mm/min respectively in a cutting, and realized high-efficient, low-cost processing of engineering ceramics. Processing mechanism analyses showed that both median/radial cracks and lateral cracks occurred in the part to be removed, and the intensity of the processed part had little destroyed, only needing adjust the axial force to control the length of transverse cracks.
