High Speed Turning of Ti-6Al-4V Alloy with Straight Cemented Carbide and PVD Coated Carbide Tools
This work comparatively studied the performances of straight cemented carbide tools and PVD coated carbide tools in high speed dry turning of Ti-6Al-4V alloy. Systematic machining tests have been performed and the tool life data were analysed using multiple linear regression method to establish extended Taylor tool life models. The wear mechanisms for both tools have been investigated in detail through SEM observation and X-ray energy dispersive microanalysis (EDS).
