Abstract:

Machining of 4140 alloy by flo-peeling, and by related turning, milling and grinding was evaluated using self-propelled and power-driven, single-edge and multiple-edge, cutting tools. The cutting tools included HSS high-speed-steel and carbide discs, HSS and carbide milling cutters, and abrasive grinding wheels. Tests were conducted using 15 HP and 20 HP lathes with a single cutter head mounted on the lathe cross-slide, and with a multiple-head assembly mounted on the carriage.
