Abstract

Tool wear is one of the most critical problems in machining hard, brittle materials. In the present work, diamond turning experiments were performed on reaction-bonded silicon carbide, and the tool wear characteristics were investigated. A special kind of wear pattern, namely periodical groove wear, was identified on the flank face of the tool, where the periodicity of the microgrooves was the same as the tool feed. Geometrical analysis showed that the periodical groove wear was caused by the tool feed marks on the machined surface. Laser micro-Raman spectroscopy indicated that the high-pressure abrasive wear at the tool-workpiece interface dominates the wear behavior, rather than the diamond-graphite transformation. By swinging the tool around its curvature center during the cutting process, the periodical groove wear pattern was suppressed, and the tool wear was reduced significantly.
