Abstract

The formation of tool marks in single-point diamond turning is a fundamental study of the effect of materials swelling and recovery on surface roughness on a machined surface. A series of orthogonal face cutting tests has been conducted among plate aluminum alloy, oxygen-free high conductivity copper and electroless nickel phosphorus under the same cutting conditions by the use of facet tools with different front clearance angles. The results show that the regular width of the undulating pattern in tool marks could be explained by side swelling and the micro-waviness within a tool mark is caused by burnishing and recovery.
