Finite Difference Modeling of Cutting Temperature in Machining of A6061-T6 Aluminum Alloy at Ultra High Cutting Speeds

Abstract:

Article Preview

The finite difference method was applied to simulate temperature distribution in the workpiece, cutting zone and tool in the orthogonal cutting process with multilayer coated sintered alumina tools. The analysis was conducted under different cutting speeds, while experiments were carried out to measure temperatures in different positions of the tool rake face using tools with built-in thin film thermocouples developed by the authors. The temperature distribution calculated along the rake face was consistent with experimental data. This proved that the finite difference modeling developed can be applied to the prediction of cutting temperatures of aluminum alloys for a range of ultra high cutting speeds.
