Analysis on Finish Hard Turning of Ti-6.5Al-3.5Mo-1.5Zr-0.3Si Alloy
Titanium alloys are extensively applied in aerospace, automotive, biomedical, and chemical industries owing to their excellent performance combining high strength-to-density ratio, good corrosion resistance, and high strength at elevated temperature. Ti-6.5Al-3.5Mo-1.5Zr-0.3Si (TC11) alloys are used to replace the most common Ti-6Al-4V in some important applications such as some parts in aerospace engine. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the machinability of TC11 alloys in the finish hard turning conditions. The paper presents the machinability results of TC11 alloys compared with Ti-6Al-4V, and analyzes the variables such as cutting force, surface integrity, and tool wear mechanism in the experiments.
