Experimental Study on the Chip Geometry and Shear Angle in Micro-Cutting Aluminum 7050-T7451
In this paper, the micro-scale machining characteristics of a non-ferrous structural alloy, aluminum 7050-T7451 is investigated through a series of cutting experiments. The effects of cutting speed and undeformed chip thickness on the chip geometry, cutting ratio, effective rake angle and shear angle in orthogonal micro-scale cutting of Al 7075-T7451 are presented. Explanations for the observed trends are also given.
