Influence of Chip Curl on Tool-Chip Contact Length in High Speed Machining
The tool-chip contact length, as an important parameter controlling the geometry of tool crater wear and understanding chip formation mechanism, is widely investigated in machining. The aim of this paper is to study the influence of chip curl on tool-chip contact length by means of experimental observations with high cutting speed. The relationship between tool-chip contact length, chip radius of curvature and uncut chip thickness was investigated. Experimental results show the effect of increasing spiral chip radius on tool-chip contact length with low uncut chip thickness in high speed machining.
