Consequence of Orientation on the Single Crystal Diamond Cutting Tool

  • K. Uegami
  • K. Tamamura


The single crystal diamond tools having various orientation are prepared in which the rake face is lapped to identify with the {100} and {110} plane respectively, and the direction of cutting edge is coincided with the direction coresponding to the max. or minimum values of the coefficient of friction. Cutting aluminum alloy by these diamond tools are examined from the view points of the cutting force and tool wear.
