Prediction of the cutting forces during the turning of Titanium Alloy Ti6Al4V
Ishankumar Upadhyay,  Pankaj Rathod,  Krishna Tadvi
High strength, low density, and excellent corrosion resistance are the main properties that make titanium alloys favoured for a variety of applications. In spite of its fascinating characteristics, it is considered to be difficult to machine material because of its low thermal conductivity (resulting in high heat generation at the chip-tool interface), high chemical reactivity-especially at high cutting temperature (leading to an accelerated adhesive tool wear) and low modulus of elasticity (causing harmful deflections in the workpieces). The titanium alloy Ti6Al4V is very difficult to machine and machinability criteria like; cutting force, friction force, surface roughness and tool life etc are very important parameters to consider. Mathematical model has generated to predict cutting forces during the machining of Ti6Al4V. The results are in very good agreement with the experimental data.It proves the potentiality of the oxley’s model to use for titanium alloy Ti6Al4V.
