Examination of Shape Error of Outer Cylindrical Surfaces Machined by Environmentally Friendly Way

pdf PDF


The paper deals with experimental examination of the machining of the cylindrical workpieces. The purpose of this paper was to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the relation between cutting data (cutting speed, feed rate), parameters of coolants and lubricants (viscosity, volume per minute), and error of machined cylindrical workpiece in terms of peak to valley cylindricity deviation, peak to reference cylindricity deviation, and reference to valley cylindricity deviation during “outer boring” with a carbide insert in AISI 1045 steel. Full factorial experiment design was used in the study. The kinematics and rigidity of the machining examined here differs from the usual machining. In our study, the cylindrical workpiece is standing on the milling machine, and a cutting tool having single point cutting edge makes the rotating movement and the feed as well. Our aim is to determine empirical expressions between the technological parameters set at machining and the geometrical shapes error. Based on the examinations, the appropriate parameter combination can be selected.
