Abstract:

The program objectives were 1 To perform analysis of current and planned machining methods for the manufacture of tracked combat vehicle components, to identify these methods for their applicability to optimization and cost effectiveness testing 2 To perform testing and evaluation of cutting tool type and design, cutting fluids, and machining conditions to maximize the efficiency and cost effectiveness of these machining methods and 3 To summarize the results of the study in a series of data tables listing recommended cutting tool, geometry, speed, feed, depth of cut, and cutting fluid for each of the work material and machine operation combinations tested. Keywords Ferrous and nonferrous alloys carbide tools microstructure.
