Lubricant Applying Effect Mechanism in Inconel 718 Cutting - Effects of Cutting Speed and Depth of Cut -
Applying materials on the precut surface of ductile metal cuttings can greatly improve their machinability, due to the reduction in friction between the lamella of the chip. We refer to this effect as the lubricant applying effect. This paper investigates the influences of the lubricant applying effect on the cutting of the super alloy Inconel 718. The experimental results demonstrate that the lubricant applying effect plays an important role in Inconel 718 cutting as well as ductile metal cutting.
