Effects of machining inclination angles on microgroove quality in micro ball end milling of Ti-6Al-4V

Effects of machining inclination angles on microgroove quality in micro ball end milling of... Micro end milling is a main method for the fabrication of microgroove parts which are widely applied in biology, electronics, precision machinery, and other fields. However, the machining quality of microgroove is difficult to meet requirements due to size effect, and the machined grooves easily produce high surface roughness and poor form accuracy during micro milling. In this paper, in order to investigate the effects of machining inclination angles on the performance of micro ball end milling, the micro milling experiments on Ti-6Al-4V are carried out by setting the micro ball end mill with different inclination angles in feed direction, cross-feed direction, and the combination of the two directions, respectively. The results show that the tool orientation strategy has significant influences on the quality of microgroove and can reduce the roughness and improve the form accuracy. With increase of the absolute value of inclination angle along feed direction from 0° to 45°, the surface roughness has a decreasing trend, and the chips adhesion and texture becomes inconspicuous. When inclination angle along feed direction is 30° and 45°, the combination inclination angle strategy has no obvious influences on the surface roughness with increase of inclination angle along cross-feed direction. However, the combination inclination angles strategy can reduce the maximum form deviation and improve the form accuracy of the groove. Based on the results, an optimal combination inclination angles with feed direction 45° and cross-feed direction 20° strategy is proposed to machining the microgroove. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology Springer Journals
