Abstract:The aims of this study are to explain the phenomena of the primary (ZI) and secondary (ZII) shearing zones formation, generated during machining and to highlight the role of the microstructure of the hardened bearing steel 100Cr6, in frictional contact with a cBN cutting tool. To reproduce the loadings induced during the cutting, dynamic mechanical shearing and tribological tests were carried out: (1) the dynamic shear tests made it possible to reproduce the ZI using 'hat‐shaped specimens' and (2) the friction phenomenon has been studied using a thermotribometer, to simulate tool chip contact. In addition, the cutting temperature in orthogonal cutting has also been analysed. Relationships for the microstructure and for the evolution of the friction coefficients as a function of the cutting temperature were obtained. The results show that the absence of carbide has a tendency to decrease the material resistance and the friction coefficient. These evolutions are explained respectively by the higher temperature generated on ZI and ZII.

- International Journal of Machining and Machinabilty of Materials is a refereed international publication in the field of machining and machinability of materials. Machining science and technology is an important subject with application in several industries. Parts manufactured by other processes often require further operations before the product is ready for application. Machining is the broad term used to describe removal of material from a workpiece, and covers chip formation operations - turning, milling, drilling and grinding, for example. Machining processes can be applied to work metallic and non metallic materials such as polymers, wood, ceramics, composites and special materials. Today, in modern manufacturing engineering, there has been strong renewed interest in high efficiency machining.
