Machinability Prediction of Workpiece Material with a Diagraph Method
This work presents a diagraph method for the description and predication of the potential machinability of work materials. In the method, a radar chart with five axes was used to examine the machinability of different work materials and each axis representing a behavior or property, i.e. abrasiveness or hardness of workpiece material by grading the 5 different machinability properties. Such charts are seen to be helpful in the setup work to machine the new materials or unknown materials when choosing suitable tool properties and the cutting data suitable for the new material machining.
