Abstract: Advanced manufacturing technology has been adopted to reduce the production cost, to improve product quality, and to shorten development time in enterprise. High-speed cutting (HSC) offers the most appropriate opportunity for reduction of run times (Schulz and Moriwaki, 1993). It is difficult to predict tool wear of HSC, section parameters of chip geometry contains key parameters that affect tool wear calculation. It is possible to predict chip forms before cutting and calculation. The paper presents an algorithm to analyse chip forms for HSC, defines chip categories and prediction result can be used to analyse tool wear and tool safety.
Keywords: chip formation; high speed cutting; HSC; tool wear; high speed machining; HSM; information integration; tool safety; wear prediction; chip geometry.
