Complex Process Monitoring of Cutting Hybrid Metal Structures
The behavior of the cutting edge of the tool during the cutting process, especially the impact of the boundary surfaces of different materials has been studied by several authors. In this paper the latest results, achieved by our team, are reported. Several methods of the complex diagnostics of the cutting process of metal composite structures, including cutting force measurement, vibration analysis, high speed camera and thermography were successfully used for this purpose. It was found, that the boundary surface of the different materials has a big impact on the cutting force, the vibration and the temperature of the tool, which can be monitored very effectively with this complex technique.
