Tool Temperatures in Orthogonal Cutting of Alloyed Titanium

Published

Author(s)

Robert W. Ivester

Abstract

This paper presents infrared-based measurements and analysis of cutting tool temperatures for orthogonal machining of alloyed titanium. High-speed infrared video provided the basis for measurement of cutting tool temperature distribution as reported here for cutting speeds from 55 m/min to 125 m/min with tungsten carbide tooling with and without a titanium nitride coating. The presence of the coating provides a reduction in tool temperature of approximately 100 degrees C. Increasing the cutting speed from 55 m/min to 125 m/min increases the peak tool temperature by approximately 70 degrees C.
