Description

 Turning of hardened steels with interrupted surfaces presents some restrictions,
due to the fact that the tools usually used have little resistance against the typical
loads of interrupted cutting. In order to reduce tool wear, an appropriate combination of tool material and cutting edge preparation must be chosen. With the goal of finding a proper edge geometry, the paper investigates the influence
of customized cutting edge geometries on tool wear performance of CBN tools
in interrupted hard turning. Regarding tool flank wear, results showed that a single chamfered cutting edge is the most appropriate, since it reinforces the
cutting edge without excessively increasing mechanical and thermal loads.
The main wear mechanism observed for all micro geometries corresponds to
attrition.
