Experiments on High-Speed and Dry Cutting with PCBN Tool
This paper deals with the High-speed Hard and Dry Cutting mechanism of hardened alloy-steel with PCBN tool: the cutting speed and workpieces temperature and tool wear are being discussed in different cutting speeds when cutting alloy-steel 42CrMo. After the workpiece temperature measured by ThermaVision, it is proved that the workpiece temperature was not high and changed little. Through the SEM and EDS analyses for chip and tool wear, it is proved that PCBN tool is suitable for High-speed Hard and Dry Cutting. It is suitable for PCBN tool to cut hardened alloy-steel 42CrMo instead of grinding.
