- Multiple test setups on same platform
- Real component testing and quick screening
- Several in-line sensors for advanced analysis
- In-line 3D Profilometer to look at surface finish
Why Study? Machining is shaping materials into useful forms by removing the material. The cutting tool contacts with the work piece and either the tool, the work piece, or both while in motion. Cutting tool wear, final surface finish, cutting rate, metalworking fluids, additives, emulsifiers effect reliability and cost-effectiveness of the entire process. Study tribology and mechanical properties to improve machining and cutting tool process.
Rtec Cutting Tool Tribology solution comes with various test modules that mounts on the same platform. The test setups allows characterization of cutting inserts, tools, taps, drill bits, fluids, materials, coatings, process parameters, and many more. For a quick screen of the entire process or for research and development, we use this setup.
