Abstract

The paper reports on the modeling and respective experimental validation for the formation of the machined subsurface layer in turning with nose-radiused and round tools. An experimental work on the mechanisms of work-hardening of the machined surface and related wear of the cutting tools was conducted for high-speed turning of aged Inconel 718 with whisker-reinforced alumina tools. The model shows that multiple deformations of the machined surface occur when machining with small feeds and tools with large nose radius, thus changing the mechanics of surface formation. Experimental results confirm the localized increase in subsurface hardness in the vicinity of the tool tip. The variation in the degree of work-hardening and the extent of the area affected by it fully agree with the predictions of the model. The model also shows that a significant part of the cutting tool may cut through the extra work-hardened material. Tool wear tests show that the local increase in workpiece hardness results in a localized increase in the wear rate of the cutting tools.
