Mechanics of Metal Cutting

The force acting on a cutting tool during the process of metal
cutting are the fundamental importance in the design of cutting
tools. The determination of cutting forces necessary for
deformation the work material at the shear zone is essential for
several important requirements:

to estimate the power requirements of a machine tool

to estimate the straining actions that must be resisted by the
machine tool components, bearings, jigs and fixtures
to evaluate the role of various parameters in cutting forces
to evaluate the performance of any new work material, tool
material, environment, techniques etc. with respect to machinability
(cutting forces)

Several forces can be defined relative to the orthogonal cutting model.

Based on these forces, shear stress, coefficient of friction, and certain
other relationships can be defined.

In metal cutting one of the main problem is to
evaluate the cutting forces Pz and Pxy from the
given cutting conditions and initial properties of
work material and it is necessary to determine s,

Earnest-Merchant Theory
Ernst and Merchant extended their analysis and studied the relationship between the shear
angle and the cutting conditions. They suggested that the shear angle always takes the value
that reduces the total energy consumed in cutting to a minimum. Because the total work done
in cutting is dependent upon and is a direct function of the component Pz of the cutting force,
they developed an expression for Pz in terms of and the constant properties of the workpiece
material. Condition for maximum cutting force (Pz) from Equation [13]

assuming that the shear stress along the shear plane varies linearly with
normal stress (n). It is given as (from the following Figure).

Lee and Shaffer Theory

According to this theory the shear occurs on a single plane. So for a
cutting process according to this theory, the following are supposed to
hold good:

The material ahead of the cutting tool behaved as ideal plastic material
The chip does not get hardened
The chip and parent work material are separated by a shear plane.

Lee and Shaffer derived the following relationship as:

Thermal Aspect of Chip Formation

Machining is inherently characterized by generation of heat and high
cutting temperature. At such elevated temperature the cutting tool if
not enough hot hard may lose their form stability quickly or wear out
rapidly resulting in increased cutting forces, dimensional inaccuracy of
the product and shorter tool life. The magnitude of this cutting
temperature increases, though in different degree, with the increase of
cutting velocity, feed and depth of cut, as a result, high production
machining is constrained by rise in temperature. This problem increases
further with the increase in strength and hardness of the work material.
Knowledge of the cutting temperature rise in cutting is important,
because increases in temperature:

adversely affect the strength, hardness and wear resistance of the cutting
tool
cause dimensional changes in the part being machined, making control of
dimensional accuracy difficult and
can induce thermal damage to the machined surface, adversely affecting its
properties and service life.

18/13

In addition, the machine tool itself may be

distortion of the machine. The main sources of
heat in metal cutting are shown in the following
Figure. These three distinct heat sources are:

the shear zone (q1), where the main plastic

deformation takes place
the chip-tool interface zone (q2), where secondary
plastic deformation due to friction between the
heated chip and the tool takes place
the work tool interface (q3), at flanks where
frictional rubbing occurs.

Various studies have been made of temperatures in cutting, based on

heat transfer and dimensional analysis, using experimental data. A
simple and approximate expression for the mean temperature for
orthogonal cutting is

0.4 U Vc t
T=

C K

0..333

where,
T = mean temperature rise at the tool-chip interface (oC)
U = specific energy in the operation (N-m/mm3)
Vc = cutting velocity (m/sec)
t = depth of cut (mm)
pC = volumetric specific heat of the workpiece (J/mm2-C)
K = thermal diffusivity (ratio of thermal conductivity to volumetric specific heat) of the
workpiece material (m2/sec).
