Abstract: Traditional adaptive control technologies in machining process optimization are limited in
applications because they depend much on sensors, controllers and other hardware. An off-line
optimization method for end milling process with constant cutting power is presented. On taking
advantage of virtual machining which simulates milling process, acquires cutting parameters and
predicts cutting forces, method taking constant cutting power as an objective is discussed to optimize
feed rates and cutting speeds. Based on optimal result, the feed rates and spindle revolutions in NC
program are re-scheduled. Controlled milling experiments show that machining time is reduced and
machining stability is improved by using the optimized NC program.
Abstract: How to improve the surface quality of large-scale silicon wafer in the ultra-precision
grinding process, will always be the most important issue discussed by the silicon wafer
manufacturer. In this paper, the advantage of ultrasonic grinding is being explored. These
advantages included small macro grinding force, grinding stress, low grinding heat, which will
reduce the surface damage. Combined with relatively abrasive, a large-scale silicon wafer can be
processed. Through the study, an experimental system for ultrasonic grinding of large-scale silicon
wafer is designed. The working parameter is optimized and the expected result is obtained, which
searches a new way for the practical implementation.
Abstract: As we know, it is a useful method to prolong cupping mould lifecycle by employing
diamond as cupping mould, especially to cupping mould of cupping horniness material. However,
the machining of diamond cupping mould is always difficult. The paper intends to use the method
of ultrasonic and electric spark combined to process diamond cupping mould. Based on the theory
research and experiment, a satisfied result is attained. The experiment proves that the method is
feasible, which decreases not only the chances of short-circuit in the process but also the energy
consumption and improves machining efficiency significantly. These advantages are obvious.
Abstract: The current surface strengthening process of microalloyed unquenched and tempered
steel components is usually induction or laser quenching treatment. Subsequent to heat treatment,
these structural parts are subjected to grinding, during which impairment of hardened materials can
be caused by thermo-mechanical influence of the grinding process. This paper studies a new
method of surface heat treatment by making use of grinding heat and stress to create favorable
microstructures and promote high wear and fatigue resistance. This work outlines the influence of
grinding parameters on the superficial hardening effect of 48MnV microalloyed steel. It was found
that the thickness and hardness of the treated surface layer could be up to 1.6mm and HV750
respectively. The beneficial microstructure of the layer was created by an enhanced martensite
transformation. It is highly possible that the method can be used to incorporate grinding and surface
hardening into a single grinding operation to develop a cost-effective production method.
Abstract: The chip-breaking groove of a blade is one of the main factors influencing chip control. In
this paper, we report the use of a virtual reality technique to optimize the shape of the groove on a
blade according to the status of chip formation and breakage. First, by using the software, World Tool
Kid, the virtual cutting systems were developed to determine the linkages between the moving parts in
the machine tool and display the virtual course of chip formation and breakage. And then, the virtual
reality of optimizing the shape of the turning blade groove was carried out, that is, during calculation
of loci in dimensional movement and solving mathematical model of the chip breakage, by inputting
the groove’s parameters and cutting conditions of the blade, and simulating the track in dimensional
movement of a chip and the restricting relations between the chip and each barrier, the intersecting
coordinates in dimensional points of chips and the breaking manner could be solved. For improper
chip-breaking manner, by modifying the model parameters, the blade groove was recalculated until
the chips could be broken with ease. Based on the shapes of chips, the shape of the blades’ groove can
be optimized to get optimal shape.
Abstract: Based on the experiment of high speed milling ball-end milling forces, the model of
ball-end milling force is established for high speed machining complex surface by differential
method, and research on the principle of high speed ball-end milling force. Results show that the
parameters of cutting layer are subjected to varying curvature of complex surface, and place in the
unstable state, cutting force decreases as the curvature and the inclination angle increase. By means
of lessening cutting speed’s grads and adjusting the inclination angle and the path interval of cutter
to the variety of curvature, cutting force and its fluctuation can be depressed availably; the process
of high speed ball-end milling can be obviously improved.

Abstract: The grain size and its identity of abrasives are of high importance to obtain the
damage-free and low roughness surfaces in traditional polishing processes. The undesirable
scratches will appear on the surface of workpiece, if the grain size of abrasives is of high
decentralization, or some abnormal larger grains or impurities are interfused in polishing process.
And it is very difficult to polish curved surfaces. A new polishing technology, which is called as
polishing with flotative abrasive balls, is put forward in this paper, in order to solve the problems
mentioned above. Some primary experiments and theoretical analyses are carried out. It is found
that the contact pressure between workpiece and abrasive grains may be easily controlled, as a
result, the depth of cutting may also be easily controlled and it is not sensitive to the grain size of
abrasives. The new technology may also be used in the polishing of curved surfaces.
Abstract: Ceramic tool materials, 3Y-TZP added by TiN particles, were fabricated through
hot-pressing techniques. The effects of TiN on their low-temperature degradation at 220# in air
were investigated. It is shown that TiN can improve the stability of t-ZrO2 and inhibit the
transformation from tetragonal to monoclinic phase, and that the content of TiN affects the stability
of tetragonal phase and the propagation of tetragonal-to-monoclinic transformation into the
specimen interiors. It is suggested that the grain-boundary phase prevents the nucleation of
transformation, and that the high elastic modulus of TiN can prevent the propagation of phase
transformation by resisting the volume expansion of transformation. When the content of TiN is
20wt%, the ceramic material shows better low temperature degradation resistance.
Abstract: Green cutting has become focus of attention in ecological and environmental protection.
Water vapor is cheap, pollution-free and eco-friendly. Therefore water vapor is a good and
economical coolant and lubricant. Water vapor generator and vapor feeding system are developed to
generate and feed water vapor. The lubricating method of water vapor is that the water vapor jet flow
is directly jetted on the cutting zone and it cancels the fluid phase penetrating the capillaries in cutting
zone. So it increases the time reserve of penetration and improves the property of penetration and
lubricating effect. In order to find the influenced disciplinarians on lubricating effect with nozzle
diameter, the parameters of water vapor jet flow and cooling distance (the distance between nozzle
and cutting zone), experiments are carried out which hard alloy YT15 (P10 type in ISO) tool is used
in cutting C45 steel. Experimental results show that the cutting force becomes lowered and chip
thickness becomes thinned with the nozzle diameter decreasing. With the saturated vapor pressure
increasing and the cooling distance shortening, the cutting force is lowed and the chip thickness is
thinned too. Therefore the application of water vapor as coolant and lubricant can realize the green
cutting in industry.
