Machining terminology (cont.)

ls

Chip thickness thickness of machined chip (tc )

Orthogonal model

Depth of cut = to
Shear plane length measured along shear plane chip (ls )
Chip width (not shown) width of machined chip (w )
Shear angle angle of shearing surface measured from tool direction (f)
ME 482 - Manufacturing Systems

Cutting conditions
Note: - Primary cutting due to speed
- Lateral motion of tool is feed
- Tool penetration is depth of cut
The three together form the material removal rate (MRR):
MRR = v f d
with units of (in/min)(in/rev)(in) = in3/min/rev

(or vol/min-rev)

Types of cuts:
Roughing:

feeds of 0.015 0.05 in/rev

depths of 0.1 0.75 in

Finishing:

feeds of 0.005 0.015 in/rev

depths of 0.03 0.075 in

Cutting geometry
Chip thickness ratio = r = to / tc

From the shear plane geometry:


r = ls sinf/[ls cos(f - a)]

which can be arranged to get


tan f = r cos a /[1 r sin a]

ME 482 - Manufacturing Systems

Obviously, the
assumed failure
mode is shearing of
the work along the
shear plane.

Cutting geometry
Note from the triangles in (c) that the shear strain (g) can be
estimated as
g = AC/BD = (DC + AD)/BD = tan(f - a) + cot f

Thus, if know
r and a, can
determine f,
and given f
and a, can
determine g.
ME 482 - Manufacturing Systems

Cutting forces
Since R = R = R, we can get the force balance equations:
F = Fc sin a + Ft cos a

F = friction force; N = normal to chip force

N = Fc cos a - Ft sin a

Fc = cutting force; Ft = thrust force

Fs = Fc cos f - Ft sin f

Fs = shear force; Fn = normal to shear plane force

Fn = Fc sin f + Ft cos f

Forces are presented as function of


Fc and Ft because these can be
measured.

Friction angle = b
tan b = m = F/N

Shear plane stress:


t = Fs/As
where
As = to w/sin f

ME 482 - Manufacturing Systems

Cutting forces given shear strength


Letting S = shear strength, we can derive the following
equations for the cutting and thrust forces*:

Fs = S As
Fc = Fs cos ( b - a)/[cos ( f + b - a)]
Ft = Fs sin ( b - a)/[cos ( f + b - a)]
* The other forces can be determined from the equations on the previous
slide.

If we increase the shear angle, we

Cutting models
The orthogonal model for turning approximates the complex
shearing process:
to = feed (f)
w = depth of cut (d)

ME 482 - Manufacturing Systems

Cutting power
Power is force times speed:
P = Fc v

(ft-lb/min)

The cutting horsepower is

hpc = Fc v/33,000

(hp)

The unit horsepower is


hpu = hpc/MRR

units?

Due to efficiency losses (E about 90%), the gross hp is


hpg = hpc/E
ME 482 - Manufacturing Systems

Cutting energy
Specific energy is
U = Fc v/(v tow) = Fc /(tow)

(in-lb/in3)

The table shown contains power and specific energy ratings for several work materials
at a chip thickness of 0.01 in. For other chip thicknesses, apply the figure to get a
correction factor multiply U by correction factor for thickness different than 0.01).

Machining example
In orthogonal machining the tool has rake angle 10, chip thickness before
cut is to = 0.02 in, and chip thickness after cut is tc = 0.045 in. The cutting
and thrust forces are measured at Fc = 350 lb and Ft = 285 lb while at a
cutting speed of 200 ft/min. Determine the machining shear strain, shear
stress, and cutting horsepower.
Solution (shear strain):
Determine r = 0.02/0.045 = 0.444
Determine shear plane angle from tan f = r cos a /[1 r sin a]

tan f = 0.444 cos 10 /[1 0.444 sin 10] => f = 25.4


Now calculate shear strain from g = tan(f - a) + cot f
g = tan(25.4 - 10) + cot 25.4 = 2.386 in/in

Fs = 350 cos 25.4 - 285 sin 25.4 = 194 lb

Determine shear plane area from As = to w/sin f


As = (0.02) (0.125)/sin 25.4= 0.00583 in2

Cutting temperatures
In machining 98% of the cutting energy is converted into heat. This
energy flows into the work part, chip, and tool. Cook determined an
experimental equation for predicting the temperature rise at the
tool-chip interface during machining:

Example in text calculates


DT = 0.4 U (v to
c)
DT = 936 total tool
where
temperature, given v =
200 ft/min, rc = 120 inDT = mean temperature rise (F)
U = specific energy (in-lb/in3)
lb/(in3- F) and K = 0.125
v = cutting speed (in/s)
in2/s
/K)0.333/(r

to = chip thickness before cut (in)


rc = volumetric specific heat of the work material (in-lb/(in3-F))
K = thermal diffusivity of the work material (in2/s)

Note - To get total temperature at tool-chip interface, must add in ambient


temperature!
