Description

This free online course introduces you to basics of Machining and Tool Life, especially in the areas of tribology and the problems associated with chip tool tribology. It also explains the use of tribometers to measure tribology and provides insights into the role of surface roughness, tool wear and tool life in the machining process. This course is arranged systematically and presented clearly so you will easily be able to understand the given concepts.

The second part of the course gives importance to topics such as types and the need for lubrication, the process of measuring surface roughness and the parameters required for calculating material removal rate. Next, it discusses the principles of machinability and the thermal aspects of the machining process. Identification of tool wear for determining tool life criteria in the machining process is also covered in the course. This process comes under the mechanisms of tool wear.

Finally, the course gives emphasis on different types of work piece materials that affects the tool life in the machining process. The different application techniques of cutting fluids are also mentioned, which affects the tool life. Upon completion of this course, you will learn about the mechanisms of tool wear and how various work piece materials and application techniques of cutting fluids affects the tool life in the machining process. The Machining and Tool Life course is a basic, but informative course and will interest mechanical undergraduate students or those who have an interest in these topics. So, sign up for this course and start learning today!
