Description: This simulation shows the influence of the angle of attack, ?r on chip thickness hmax and the forces. Usually ?r = 45° (reduction in chip thickness), choose ?r 30° and 75° for surfacing, and ?r = 90° to cut a straight shoulder. When the angle of attack, ?r increases, provided feed rate and ap stays the same, the radial load, Fr and the chip thickness increases proportionally, while the contact area (between the part and the insert) is reduced.
Keywords: angle of attack • chip thickness • radial load • feed rate
