Cryogenic orthogonal turning of Ti-6Al-4V – Analysis of nitrogen supply pressure variation and subcooler usage

Stampfer, Benedict; Golda, Philipp; Schießl, Robert; Maas, Ulrich; Schulze, Volker

Cooling of machining operations by liquid nitrogen is a promising approach for reducing cutting temperatures, increasing tool life and improving the workpiece surface integrity. Unfortunately, the cooling fluid tends to evaporate within the supply channel. This induces process variations and hinders the use of nitrogen cooling in commercial applications. In this work, the coolant is applied via the tool’s rake face during orthogonal turning of Ti-6Al-4V. The effect of a nitrogen supply pressure adjustment and a subcooler usage—proposed here for the first time for machining—is analyzed in terms of process forces, tool temperatures and wear patterns, taken dry cutting as a reference. Thereby, reliable cooling strategies are identified for cryogenic cutting.
