A Study on Influence of Process Parameters on Tool Wear of PVD Coated Cutting Tools in Orthogonal Machining of Al6351: A Finite Element Analysis


Objectives: In this effort, Finite Element Methods (FEM) were applied to judge the impact of various cutting factors on the machining of Aluminum alloy Al6351 by using diverse inserts. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Stress variations on the tool inserts were examined by the FEA using ANSYS. Finite Element Study stood incorporated in learning of power in variety of coatings and uncoated cutting insert on manufacturing of Al 6351. Various coatings like TiN, TiC, Al2 O3 and uncoated tungsten carbide inserts were used in this learn. The happening and allotment of various stress in the cutting insert were premeditated and related for uncoated and various coatings. Findings: The stress on the cutting tool rise with feed. Though an effective force in machining was nearly similar observed in overall experiments, cutting insert stress stood prejudiced with respect to feed force and machining force and without the passive force importance on metal cutting in aluminum alloy. Application/Improvements: Investigating the stress distribution in tool inserts and microscopic images depicting the tool wear and the type of wear.
