Cutting Performance of Ceramic Tools in Turning of Mild Steel

Abstract:

Article Preview

This study deals with the cutting performance of ceramic tools in turning of mild steel and BN free-machining steel based on it. The tool lives of ceramic tools in turning standard steel were less than 15 min at the cutting speed 250 m/min. On the other hand, the tool lives in turning of BN free-machining steel were obvious longer than that of standard steel. The tool life of TiC added alumina ceramic tool reached almost 10 hours in the case that the tool life criteria was set at VB=0.3mm. This tool life was twice as long as that of coated carbide tool.
