Types of Chips
: These chips are smallsegments, which adhere loosely to each other. Theyare formed when the amount of deformation to whichchips undergo is limited by repeated fracturing. Hardand brittle materials like bronze, brass and cast ironwill produce such chips.
Continuous or Ribbon Type Chips
: In continuouschip formation, the pressure of the work piece buildsuntil the material fails by slip along the plane. Theinside on the chip displays steps produced by theintermittent slip, but the outside is very smooth. Ithas its elements bonded together in the form of longcoils and is formed by the continuous plasticdeformation of material without fracture ahead of thecutting edge of the tool and is followed by the smoothflow of chip up the tool face.
