Material removal rate, Tool nose wear, Turning, Difficult to machine material, Carbide tool
In this paper the effect of input parameters such as spindle rotation, feed rate and depth of cut on material removal rate and tool nose wear of machined components which were taken as the output parameters were analyzed during turning process. It is observed as the spindle rotation, feed rate and depth of cut increased material removal rate increases. When these parameters are varied the circumferential length of material encountering the tool work interface and cutting force increases that resulted in increased material removal rate. The effect of these process parameters on tool nose wear is also analyzed. Among the process parameters spindle rotation is having significant effect on tool nose wear compared to feed rate and depth of cut.
