The Cutting Energy of Rubber Cutting by a Sharp Cutter


Article Preview

In order to obtain the total cutting energy and the ratios of the three parts of the total energy during cutting off the rubber, a test method was proposed and a test apparatus was constructed to perform the rubber cutting experiment. In the test, the friction force and the cutting force were obtained. Through the analysis of the test results, the friction work, the deformation energy, the surface fracture energy in cutting different thickness of the rubber were calculated. This work originally proposed a test method to acquire the friction force, the friction work between the cutter and workpiece during punching process.
