Recognition of Chip Forms by Means of Dynamic Force Spectrum Analysis

  • W. Grzesik


In this study the ability to identify chip forms occurrs in the turning of austenitic stainless steel using dynamic force spectrum analysis has been tested. For this purpose the frequency spectra obtained from various metal cutting tests were recorded along with the static cutting forces. A dual channel analysis, based on the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT), was adopted to help identify the continuous/discontinuous (favourable/unfavourable) chip forming boundary. The results showed an acceptable correlation between the types of the frequency spectra and the types of chip forms. Finally, an original classification of the spectra obtained during turning of AISI 304 (DIN 1.4301) stainless steel is proposed.
