Experimental Investigation of Various Chip Parameters during Machining of the Ti25Nb3Mo3Zr2Sn Beta Titanium Alloy
Machining of Ti25Nb3Mo3Zr2Sn beta titanium alloy is carried out under two different heat treatments, solution treated, and solution treated and aged conditions. The chips formed after machining were cold mounted, polished and etched to reveal their microstructures. Different chip parameters such as average chip thickness, shear angle, undeformed chip length, and distance between serrations were measured and reported for both the heat treated samples for a wide range of cutting speeds, ranging from 5 m/min to 175 m/min. The results obtained were explained in terms of the heat treatment (hardness) of the samples and the cutting speeds.
