13Concept of Machinability and itsImprovement
Version 2 ME IIT, Kharagpur
Instructional objectives
At the end of this lesson, the students would be able to(i) Conceptualise machinability and state its
Criteria of judgement(ii) Illustrate how machinability is governed or influenced by severalfactors,
Chemical and physical properties of work material
Processing parameters
Cutting tool parameters
Environmental factors(iii) Suggest various methods of improvement of machinability
(i) Concept, Definition And Criteria Of Judgement OfMachinability
It is already known that preformed components are essentially machined toimpart dimensional accuracy and surface finish for desired performance andlonger service life of the product. It is obviously attempted to accomplishmachining effectively, efficiently and economically as far as possible byremoving the excess material smoothly and speedily with lower powerconsumption, tool wear and surface deterioration. But this may not be alwaysand equally possible for all the work materials and under all the conditions.The machining characteristics of the work materials widely vary and alsolargely depend on the conditions of machining. A term; ‘Machinability’ hasbeen introduced for gradation of work materials w.r.t. machiningcharacteristics.But truly speaking, there is no unique or clear meaning of the termmachinability. People tried to describe “Machinability” in several ways suchas:
It is generally applied to the machining properties of work material
It refers to material (work) response to machining
It is the ability of the work material to be machined
It indicates how easily and fast a material can be machined.But it has been agreed, in general, that it is difficult to clearly define andquantify Machinability. For instance, saying ‘material A is more machinablethan material B’ may mean that compared to ‘B’,
‘A’ causes lesser tool wear or longer tool life
‘A’ requires lesser cutting forces and power
‘A’ provides better surface finishVersion 2 ME IIT, Kharagpur
