Abstract: In this study, experiments are carried out to evaluate the characteristics of high speed cutting of tungsten carbide material using a Makino V55 high speed machine tool with cubic boron nitride (CBN) tool inserts. The cutting forces were measured using a three-component dynamometer, the surface roughness of the machined workpiece was measured using a Mitutoyo SURFTEST 301, and the machined workpiece surfaces and the chip formation were examined using a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Experimental results indicate that the radial force Fx is much larger than the tangential force F z and the axial force Fy. Two types of surfaces of the machined workpiece are achieved: ductile cutting surface and fracture surface. Continuous chips and discontinuous chips are formed under different cutting conditions. Depth of cut and feed rate almost have no significant effect on the surface roughness of the machined workpiece. The SEM observations on the machined workpiece surfaces and chip formation indicate that the ductile mode cutting is mainly determined by the undeformed chip thickness when the tool cutting edge radius is fixed. Ductile cutting can be achieved when the undeformed chip thickness is less than a critical value. © 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
