Research on Cutting Force and Surface Roughness in Face Milling Ni-Based Superalloy
The machinability of Nickel-based superalloy GH4169 is poor, the traditional methods to machining is application of cutting fluids with the active additives which cause environmental pollution and health problems. In this paper, the water vapor was applied on milling instead of cutting fluids for the aim of green milling GH4169. The effects of water vapor, oil emulsion and dry cutting on milling force and the surface roughness have been examined with carbide tools YG6A. The results of experiments indicated that application of water vapor produced lower milling force, the values were reduced about 7 percent compared to dry cutting, and it is advantage in surface roughness. The research results show that clean production was achieved in metal cutting associated with water vapor cooling and lubricating.
