Enhancing Machined Parts Surface Quality by Using a Composite Material for Tool Body in Turning
Surface roughness has a great influence on the performance of the mechanical parts and on the production costs. This paper discusses the possibility of enhancing the surface quality during face and straight turning by using a combined tool body material made of composite and steel compared with standard tool body material. The combined tool body material decreased the surface roughness of the machined part by 23% to 27%.
