Temperature measurements were of special interest in the Priority Programme (SPP) 1480 of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). Therefore the working group on temperature metrology was established. Calibration setups for (1) contacting thermometers developed at the ITT Karlsruhe and (2) radiation thermometers developed at the IFQ Magdeburg were utilized in the projects of the SPP 1480 to provide comparable high quality temperature measurements. Additionally, heat partition data was collected from the involved projects and aggregated by applying the dimensionless thermal number known from orthogonal cutting. Although theoretical calculations qualitatively agree with results from the experiments further research is needed to predict the heat partition to the workpiece for industry relevant processes.



The authors thank Mr. Marc Deppermann (WSA Aachen), Mr. Maxim Gulpak (IWT Bremen), Dr. Ivan Iovkov (ISF Dortmund), Mr. Ivan Mitkov Ivanov (IWF Berlin), Dr. Daniel Niederwestberg (IFW Hannover), Dr. Hendrik Puls (WZL Aachen) and Dr. Marco Zimmermann (FBK Kaiserslautern) for providing heat partitioning data and figures on their temperature measurement setups.

The authors greatly appreciate the financial support of the working group on temperature metrology within the Priority Programme 1480 by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).
