The Study on Three-Dimensional Roughness of Machined Surface in High Speed Milling of SiCp/Al Composites
For the purpose of investigating the effect on surface micro-topography of cutting parameters in high speed milling of SiCp/Al Composites, the high speed milling experiments were performed .The machined surface was measured by Taylor Hobson roughness tester and OLS3000 Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope. The acquired surface data was dealt with the three-dimensional roughness method. The three-dimensional root-mean-square deviation of the surface Sq and two-dimensional root-mean-square deviation Rq were compared. The effects of cutting parameters on three-dimensional roughness parameter were also investigated. The results showed that both feed rate and depth of cut have a little effect on the value of three-dimensional roughness parameter，and the cutting speed is the main affecting factor.
