Potentials of Micro Textured Cutting Tools in Machining of Aero Engine Alloys#
To what extend can tool life be increased by surface texturing of cutting tools for milling of aero engine alloys?
Challenge and Motivation
- Extensive tool wear in machining of new and advanced alloys leads to high tool costs.
- Micro texturing of rake and flank face offers the potential to increase the tool life, but only very few results are available for machining Ni-based alloys.
- Application of micro structures on cutting tools with ultra-short pulse laser.
- Identification of textures that lead to a reduction of cutting forces and tool wear in milling.
