Tool life modeling and computer simulation of tool wear when nickel based material turning

Paper presents some tool life investigations, concerning modeling and computer simulation of tool wear when turning a difficult-to-cut material like nickel based sintered powder workpiece. A cutting tool made of CBN has its special geometry. The workpiece in the form of disc is an aircraft engine part. The aim of researches is to optimize the cutting data for the purpose to decrease the tool wear and improve the machined surface roughness.
