Abstract:

The book sets forth the basic premises of metal cutting theory. The physical and chemical phenomena that accompany the metal cutting process are examined in the light of recent achievements in science and technology deformation of the material being machined, formation of buildups, strain-hardening, generation of heat, friction, cutting-tool wear, and vibration. The influence of the cutting fluid on the cutting process is also analyzed. Data on tool materials are presented. The material includes information on cutting-tool geometry, elements of cutting formulas, force, stability, temperature, and speed relationships for various types of machining. Problems associated with the establishment of optimum cutting formulas and rational utilization of metal cutting equipment and tools are set forth. Special attention is given to processes of cutting with small chip cross sections and the cutting of hard-to-machine materials. Information is given on new methods of investigating the cutting process with application of mathematical statistics and electronic-computer techniques for selection of cutting formulas. Author
