Project description:The cutting edge preparation (CE) is currently the most advanced method of increasing tool life. Cutting edge preparation in the production of cutting tools means treatment of microgeometry of cutting edge (cutting edges) of newly sharpened cutting tools. Suitable microgeometry of the cutting edge (fillet, chamfer) is essential for achieving high productivity machining mainly difficult-to-machine materials (DTM) such as austenitic stainless steels and superalloys. Therefore, the research deals with the machining of X6CrNiTi18-10 stainless steel and NiCr19FeNbMo superalloy. Machining superalloys disseminate knowledge in the energy and aerospace industries since it requires a greater commitment superalloys in future years. Our proposed project is focused on research into a completely new and own unique method of preparation of CE microgeometry of cutting tools by plasma discharge in an electrolyte (PVE). This method is developed originally at Faculty of Materials Science and Technology in Trnava, Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STU MTF).
