A Study on Ultrasonic Vibration Milling of Inconel 718
Increasing the productivity and the quality of the machined parts are the main challenges of manufacturing industry, in particular for difficult-to-machine materials, such as Inconel 718, employed in aeronautic and aerospace applications. A L18 (2×37) orthogonal array (OA) and signal-to-noise (S/N) were employed to analyze the effect of mill parameters when milling Inconel 718. Experimental results indicated that the cutting tool, depth of cut, cutting speed, feed rate, frequency and coolant have statistical and physical significance on the flank wear, surface roughness and cutting force obtained, respectively.
