Week 1 mill 1

  1. 1. Milling Processes
  2. 2. ObjectivesThe students are able to identify: Various Types of Milling Machine & Layout Industrial Applications Milling Tools Operation Factors - Speed, Feed, ... Milling Methods Planning & Setup Procedures Practices
  3. 3. Classification of Machining Processes
  4. 4. Milling Process Milling is a machining operation in which a workpiece is fed past a rotating cylindrical tool with multiple cutting edge. Multi-points cutting process Cutting Direction Chips are cut off by the Tooth rotating cutter Workpiece is fed in linear motion Milling Tool with one cutting edge is Cutter called fly-cutter (rarely used) Workpiece Feed Direction
  5. 5. Basic Milling Processes Two types of milling processes  Up milling or conventional milling process  Down milling or Climb milling process
  6. 6. Up Milling (Conventional Milling) The metal is removed in form of small chips The chip thickness is minimum at the start of the cut and maximum at the end. Cutting force varies from zero to the maximum value Advantages of Up Milling  It does not require backlash eliminator  It is safer in operation ( the cutter does not climb on the workpiece)  Loads on the teeth are acting gradually  Built-up-edge (BUE) fragments are absent from the machined surface  The cutter is not affected by the sandy surfaces of the workpiece Disadvantage of Up Milling  The tendency of cutting force to lift the work piece from the fixtures and  poor surface finish obtained

  18. 18. Up Cut Cutter rotates in a direction opposite to the table feed CUTTER FEED
  19. 19. Down Milling (Climb Milling) A cutter rotating in the same directions of the feed of the workpiece. Chip thickness is maximum at the start of the cut and minimum in the end. There is less friction involved and consequently less heat is generated on the contact surface of the cutter and workpiece Advantages  Fixtures are simpler and less costly, as cutting forces are acting downward  Flat workpiece (that cannot be firmly held) can be machined by down-milling  Cutter with higher rake angles can be used, which decreases the power requirements  Tool blunting is less likely  Better surface finish  It is characterized by less tendencies of chattering and vibration

  33. 33. Types of Milling Cutters
  34. 34. Type of Milling Cutter
  35. 35. Type of Milling Operations Two basic type of milling operations  Peripheral milling (Plain Milling)  Axis of the tool is parallel to the surface being machined.  Face milling
  36. 36. Example of Peripheral Milling (a) Slab milling; (b) Slot Milling; (c) Side Milling (d) Straddle Milling (e) Form Milling
  37. 37. Peripheral Milling Direction of Cutter Rotation  Two form of milling  Up milling and down milling Up milling (Conventional milling): the direction of motion of the cutter teeth is opposite the feed direction when teeth cut into the workpiece.  It is milling “ against the feed” Down Milling (Climb Milling): the direction of cutter motion is the same as the feed direction when teeth cut into the workpiece.  It is milling “ with the feed”
  38. 38. Face Milling The axis of the cutter is perpendicular the surface being milled. Various forms of face milling  (a) Conventional face milling; (b) Partial face milling; (c) End Milling; (d) Profile Milling; (e) Pocket Milling; (f) surface contouring Milling
  39. 39. Milling Method• Plain Milling  End Milling  Cutter axis perpendicular to the – Cutter axis parallel to the machined surface machined surface  Peripheral & end cutting edges – Peripheral cutting edges  Vertical milling normally – Horizontal milling normally PLAIN MILLING END MILLING
  40. 40. Milling Machines  It has a horizontal spindle and well suited for performing the peripheral milling (e.g. slab milling, slotting milling, side milling and straddle milling)  It has a vertical spindle and well suited for performing the face milling (e.g. end milling, surface contouring milling)
  41. 41. Horizontal Milling Machine Spindle arbor rotates parallel to the table Machine table moves along the 3 axes - X,Y, & Z Cutter being used: x  Slab milling cutter y  Side & face cutter  Slitting saw z

  49. 49. Surface Finishing Cylindrical marks are left on surface by end milling Parallel marks are left on surface by plain milling Roughness of milling is directly END MILLING proportional to the feed rate & depth of cut Finishing measurement (Roughness Value) in milling Ra = 6.3 ~ 0.8 m PLAIN MILLING
  50. 50. Tool Life Tool life is defined as the length of cutting time that the tool can be used. Operating the tool until final catastrophic failure is also defined as tool life. Taylor Tool Life Equation is expressed as VT n C Where, V cutting speed (m/min);T tool life (min); n and C are parameters whose values depend on feed, depth of cut, work materials, tooling and tool life criterion used. Milling cutter is a Multi-point cutting tool  Ground by special grinding machine  Precision cutting angles Cutter re-shape is very time consumable Tool life can be increased by  Correct spindle speed & feed rate  Apply cutting fluid  Correct cutting method

  54. 54. Example An end mill is used to put a 25-mm slot with a depth of 5 mm in a cast iron block with a high- speed cutter. The block is 50 mm wide, 20 mm tall, and 100 mm long. The cutter, a high-speed cutter with a diameter of 25 mm, has four teeth. The pretravel and overtravel combine to a total length of 5 mm. The cut will be made at a feed rate of 0.130 mm/tooth and a cutting speed of 40 m/min. The unit kilowatt power is 0.005 kW/mm3/min, the tare horsepower is 75 kW and the motor efficiency is 80 %.
