Cutting Temperature 74 Valery Marinov, Manufacturing Technology 5.4 CUTTING TEMPERATURE Introduction In cutting, nearly all of energy dissipated in plastic deformation is converted into heat that in turn raises the temperature in the cutting zone. Since the heat generation is closely related to the plastic deformation and friction, we can specify three main sources of heat when cutting, Plastic deformation by shearing in the primary shear zone (heat source Q 1 ) Plastic deformation by shearing and friction on the cutting face (heat source Q 2 ) Friction between chip and tool on the tool flank (heat source Q 3 ) Heat is mostly dissipated by, The discarded chip carries away about 60~80% of the total heat (q 1 ) The workpiece acts as a heat sink drawing away 10~20% heat (q 2 ) The cutting tool will also draw away ~10% heat (q 3 ). If coolant is used in cutting, the heat drawn away by the chip can be as big as 90% of the total heat dissipated. Q 1 Q 3 Q 2 q 3 q 2 q 1 The balance of heat generation and heat dissipation in metal cutting Knowledge of the cutting temperature is important because it: v affects the wear of the cutting tool. Cutting temperature is the primary factor affecting the cutting tool wear as discussed in Section 5.5 . v can induce thermal damage to the machined surface. High surface temperatures promote the process of oxidation of the machined surface. The oxidation layer has worse mechanical properties than the base material, which may result in shorter service life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
