Property comparison of thin walled sections machined using high speed machining and conventional machining
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
The influence of two different machining concepts has been compared. Pockets were machined in a thick plate of AA7010-T7451 by using a high speed machining concept at three different cutting speeds and a conventional machining concept. The pockets were machined using down cut milling and of the remaining thin walls of material fatigue samples were taken out. Some high-speed machined surfaces were anodized using chromic acid in order to see if differences in fatigue properties remained after this surface process. Fatigue properties at constant amplitude and random spectra loading were tested. Properties like residual stress, surface roughness; peak broadening at grazing incidence and micro hardness of machined surfaces were investigated and correlated to the fatigue results. A low cutting speed using the high speed machining or the conventional machining concept yielded the best fatigue properties when fatigue initiation is of concern. The higher fatigue strength is not explained by the residual stresses measured at the machined surfaces using chromium and copper radiation or by the somewhat larger surface roughness. The penetration depth of the residual stresses was found to be higher at high cutting speeds. Fatigue initiation took most often place at near surface iron-rich inclusions. The points of fatigue initiation were not found to differ for different machining concepts and cutting speeds.
