Özet

In this study, micro-milling of Inconel 718 was investigated. For this purpose, cutting tests were conducted by using uncoated tools and taking four different feed rates (1.25, 2.5, 3.75, and 5 mu m/flute) and a constant cutting velocity (48m/min) into account. In numerical modeling, thermomechanical behavior was modeled using the modified Johnson-Cook material model. Analyses were also conducted for different cutting tool edge angles (+8 degrees, 0, and -8 degrees). In the numerical analyses, cutting force, tool stress, and cutting temperature values were estimated depending on tool rotation and cutting tool edge type and compared with experimental results. When the results obtained from the study are considered, it is seen that the experimental cutting force and temperature values are in harmony with the numerical results. Moreover, it is seen that there is an increase in cutting force, cutting temperature, and stress values depending on the feed rate. In addition, in the numerical analyses for different cutting tool edge geometries it was observed that cutting force temperature and tool stress values varied depending on the edge geometries.
