|Title:||Chemical Aspects of Tool Wear in Single Point Diamond Turning|
|Published:||January 01, 1996|
|Abstract:||A hypothesis is proposed that ascribes chemical wear of diamond tools to the presence of unpaired d electrons in the sample being machined. This hypothesis is used to explain a range of results for metals, alloys, and other materials including electroless nickel. The hypothesis is further tested by experiments presented here on the machining of a range of high purity elements. The implications for diamond turnability of other materials are discussed.|
