Application of Wear Simulation in Tool Development


Tool wear influences the results of a metal cutting process in various ways. Tool wear affects the cutting force, the achievable surface quality and surface integrity as well as the precision. Futhermore, tool wear affects the economics of the cutting process, since paramteres are always chosen in a trade-off between productivity and tool wear. The project "Anwendung der Verschleißsimulation in der Werkzeugentwicklung" aims at developing numercial modelling methods to predict tool wear in turning processes under industrially relevant conditions (Coatings, complex micro and macro geometries) in order to support tool and process design.
