摘要：High-speed face milling of AISI H13 hardened steel is conducted in order to investigate the effects of cutting parameters on tool life and wear mechanisms of the cubic boron nitride (CBN) tools. Cutting speeds ranging from 400 to 1,600 m/min are selected. For each cutting speed, the metal removal rate and axial depth of cut are fixed, and different combinations of radial depth of cut and feed per tooth are adopted. The tool life, tool wear progression, and tool wear mechanisms are analyzed for different combinations of cutting parameters. It is found that for most of the selected cutting speeds, the tool life increases with radial depth cut and then decreases. For each cutting speed, the CBN tool life can be enhanced by means of adopting suitable combination of cutting parameters. When the cutting speed increases, the normal wear stage becomes shorter and the tool wear rate grows larger. Because of the variations of cutting force and tool temperature, the tool wear mechanisms change with different combinations of cutting parameters even at the same cutting speed. At relatively low cutting speed, in order to acquire high tool life of the CBN tool, the tool material should possess sufficient capability of resisting adhesion from the workpiece. When relatively high cutting speed is adopted, retention of mechanical properties to high cutting temperature and resistance to mechanical impact are crucial for the enhancement of the CBN tool life.
