Experimental Research of Grinding Force and Specific Grinding Energy of TC4 Titanium Alloy in High Speed Deep Grinding
Focusing on the characteristic of hard-to-grind for titanium alloy, experiments were conducted about grinding TC4 titanium alloy under high speed deep grinding (HSDG) condition. The changing of grinding force per unit area with maximum undeformed chip thickness hmax and equivalent cutting thickness aeq are analyzed in this paper. The effect of maximum undeformed chip thickness hmax and specific material removal rate Zw' on specific grinding energy es, material removal mechanism and consumption of grinding power in HSDG process are also discussed. The experiment results reveal that application of HSDG can improve machining efficiency of grinding TC4.
