The Influence of Cutting Conditions on Friction and Wear Properties of PEEK, CF/PEEK and GF/PEEK Composites Using PCD Tools
The present study establishes the relationships between the cutting conditions (cutting speed and feed rate) on trbological properties. Three types of PEEK composites such as unreinforced PEEK, reinforced PEEK with 20% of carbon fibres and 20% of glass fibres were used for the tribological tests. The parametric analysis reveals that, wear increases with increase in feed rate and cutting velocity while the friction coefficient decreases for all the materials tested. The investigation illustrates that the addition of reinforcements to PEEK improve the tribological properties relation with the cutting conditions.
