Influence of Cutting Speed, Feed Rate and Bulk Texture on the Surface Finish of Nitrogen Alloyed Duplex Stainless Steels during Dry Turning
Abstract
This paper presents the results of experimental work carried out in dry turning of cast duplex stainless steels (ASTM A 995 Grade4A and ASTM A 995 Grade5A) using TiC and TiCN coated cemented carbide cutting tools. The turning tests were conducted at five different cutting speeds (80, 100, 120, 140 and 160 m/min) and three different feed rates (0.04, 0.08 and 0.12 mm/rev) with a constant depth of cut (0.5 mm). The influence of cutting speed and feed rate on the machined surface roughness was investigated. Texture analysis (Bulk) was also carried out to study the impact of preferred orientation on the resulting surface roughness. The result reveals that the increasing cutting speed decreases the surface roughness till a particular point and then increases whereas; the surface roughness value decreases with the decreasing feed rate. Presence of alpha fiber (Bulk texture analysis) in the austenite phase of 4A work piece material leads to better surface finish. Among both the grades, surface finish of grade 4A is better than grade 5A work piece material.
