Effect of Machining Parameters on Turning of Inconel X750 Using PVD Coated Carbide Inserts

KAÇAL, Alaattin


It is one of the few studies conducted on the machining of Ni-based Inconel X750 alloy, which has a wide range of applications in the main industries (gas turbines etc.) and aerospace (rotor blades etc.) industries. In this study, cutting tool wear, cutting forces and surface roughness were investigated in dry turning of Inconel X750 super alloy with coated carbide cutting tool. For the determining of the wear types and mechanisms electronic microscope and SEM were used. 4 different cutting speeds (40, 60, 80 and 100 m/min) and 3 different feed rate (0.1, 0.15 and 0.2 mm/rev) values were used in the experiments. The cutting depth was kept constant at 1 mm. According to the results; with increasing feed rate, the value of Fc, Ff and Fp cutting force components increased. The feed rate was significantly influential on Ra. The cutting geometry and the cutting edge sharpness induced by the formation of stable BUE caused Ra to increase. The most suitable parameters for turning the Inconel X750 alloy in terms of all evaluation criteria were the cutting speed of 60 m/min and 0.1 mm/rev.
