Abstract

This paper presents investigations on turning Ti-6Al-4V alloy with uniform and variable micro-geometry inserts with single or multi-layer coatings. Turning of Ti-6Al-4V using inserts with uncoated, TiAlN coated, and TiAlN+cBN coated single and multi-layer coated tungsten carbide inserts is conducted, forces and tool wear are measured. 3-D finite element simulations are utilized to predict chip formation, forces, temperatures and tool wear on these inserts. Predicted forces and tool wear contours are compared with experiments. The temperature distributions and tool wear contours demonstrate some advantages of coated insert designs.
