Effect of Cutting Parameters on Microhardness in 2 mm Slot Milling Hardened Tool Steel

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    This paper presents an experimental study on the dependency of surface integrity on cutting parameters in slot milling of hardened tool steel. A series of 2 mm slot milling tests have been performed with different cutting parameters. Microhardness was chosen for evaluation of subsurface integrity. The process was found to be sensitive to cutting parameters. An increase of feed per tooth or depth of cut produced a reduction of the microhardness of the slot surface. An optimal combination of machining parameters was found to be 80-110 m/min in cutting speed, 0.005 mm in feed per tooth and 0.1 mm in axial depth of cut.
