The paper describes some results of the research into plastic deformation and cutting temperature in high speed milling of aluminium alloy 2024-T351. The effect of cutting speed and feed on selected parameters in chip formation has been studied.

The experimental and simulation research was carried out by with sintered carbide inserts. It was focused on chip formation, plastic deformation and the cutting temperature. The plastic deformation was studied by means of the chip roots, which were obtained with a quick stop device. The cutting temperature was measured by the tool-workpiece thermocouple. The AdvantEdge 4.2 simulation software, based on the Finite Element Method (FEM) and on the material modelling, was used for the simulation study.
