High Speed Machining of AISI 52100 Steel
This paper gives the details of High Speed Milling experiments with AISI 52100 steel (HRC52) by using coated carbide end mills. Cutting force and Surface roughness data are presented. The effects of cutting speeds (1000-8000rpm), widths of cut (0.05-0.4mm) and cutting conditions (dry cutting and dry cutting with air coolant) are investigated. The results show that in high speed milling of hardened steels, when cutting speed surpasses a critical value, cutting forces decrease as cutting speed increasing; and the increasing of widths of cut causes the increase of cutting forces approximately linearly; surface roughness does not experience obvious increase or decrease and has a minimum in a specific condition; the machining results of dry cutting with air.
