The Finite Element Analysis of Serrated Chip Formation in High-Speed Cutting Auto Panel Dies
On the base of analyzing material constitutive model, chip-tool contact friction, and chip separation and fracture, a finite element model (FEM) was built to study the high-speed machining process of alloy cast-iron. The shaping process of serrated chip in high-speed milling alloy cast-iron was simulated and analyzed in detail. It was shown that machining parameters affect the serrated chip forming greatly. The model can be used to optimize machining parameters, prolong tool life and improve machining surface quality.
