Name all the different types of chips that are produced in metal cutting and under what conditions they occur under.

Continuous chips

  • Ductile materials, high cutting speed, high rake angles
  • Deformation takes place in narrow shear zone
  • Can develop secondary shear zone due to high friction at the tool



  • Grows then breaks apart
  • Can be reduced by:
    • Higher cutting speeds
    • Decrease depth of cut
    • Increase rake angle
    • Use sharp tool
    • Use effective cutting fluid
    • Use lower chemical affinity cutting tool


Serrated Chips

  • Semi continuous chips with large zones of low shear strains and small zone of high shear strain


Discontinuous chips

  • Consists of segments that attached firmly or loosely to each other
  • Form under the following conditions:
    • Brittle workpiece materials
    • Materials with hard inclusions and impurities
    • Very low or very high cutting speeds
    • Large depths of cut
    • Low rake angles
    • Lack of an effective cutting fluid
    • Low stiffness of the machine tool


Draw and explain the different types of chip formation as the cutting speed increases

What are the different tools to measure cutting forces?

Force transducer


Load cell mounted on the cutting tool holder

Measure the current draw from the servo motors


Why do we want to avoid high cutting temperatures?


Affects the wear of the cutting tool. Cutting temperature is the primary factor affecting tool wear


Can induce thermal damage to the machined surface


Causes dimensional errors in the machined surface



What are the different types of cemented carbides

 Define Surface finish and surface finish integrity and give factors affecting SI.

  • SF (Surface finish) – geometric features of surfaces
  • SI (Surface integrity) – refers to properties such as fatigue life and corrosion resistance
  • Factors influencing SI:
    • Temperature
    • Residual stresses
    • Metallurgical transformations
    • Surface plastic deform, tearing and cracking
  • BUE has greatest influence on SF
