Abstract

In metal machining processes, the achievement of a sufficiently high material removal rate is desirable. Material removal rate can be increased to the desired value by an increase of feed rate value and also by increase of cutting speed or depth of cut values. However, as it is also required that surface quality and deformation should be within the acceptable limits, it is necessary to control them by selecting the appropriate process parameters values. In this study, face milling experiments are conducted in order to investigate the effect of using different values of depth of cut and cutting speed on the cutting forces and specific cutting forces. A comparison between the experimental results from cases with constant feed rate and two different depths of cut at four different cutting speed values, ranging from 100 to 400 m/min is conducted. After the subsequent analysis of the results, conclusions on the effect of depth of cut and cutting speed on cutting forces and specific cutting forces are drawn.
