Surface Finishes from Turning and Facing with Round Nosed Tools

The range of surface roughnesses, and particularly the minimum roughnesses, achievable mainly with cemented carbide but also with single crystal diamond round nosed turning and facing inserts, has been experimentally studied, machining aluminium on engineering …

Burrs – Analysis, Control, and Removal

Increasing demands on function and performance call for burr-free workpiece edges after machining. Since deburring is a costly and non-value-added operation, the understanding and control of burr formation is a research topic with high relevance …
