|Title:||Tool life and tool wear in the semi-finish milling of inclined surfaces|
|Author:||de Oliveira, AJ|
|Abstract:||Functional die and mold components have complex geometries and are made of high hardness materials, which make them difficult to machine. This work contributes to a better understanding of this type of process and of the wear mechanisms of tools used in semi-finishing operations of hardened steels for dies and molds. Several milling experiments were carried out to cut AISI H13 steel with 50 HR(C) of hardness using the high-speed milling technique. The main goal was to verify the influence of workpiece surface inclination and cutting conditions on tool life and tool wear mechanisms. The main conclusions were the inclination of the machined surface strongly influences tool life and tool wear involves different mechanisms. At the beginning of tool life, the wear was caused mainly by abrasion on the flank face plus diffusion and attrition on the rake face. At the end of tool life, the mechanisms were adhesions and microchipping at the cutting edge. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
