## Machining Forces and Merchant’s Circle Diagram (MCD) | Mechanics of Machining

Benefit of knowing and purpose of determining cutting forces The aspects of the cutting forces concerned : • Magnitude of the cutting forces and their components • Directions and locations of action of those forces • Pattern of the forces : static and / or...

## Use of Chip Breaker in Machining | Mechanics of Machining

Need and purpose of chip-breaking Continuous machining like turning of ductile metals, unlike brittle metals like grey cast iron, produce continuous chips, which leads to their handling and disposal problems. The problems become acute when ductile but strong metals like steels are machined at high...

## Orthogonal and Oblique Cutting | Mechanics of Machining

Orthogonal and oblique cutting It is appears from the diagram in Fig. Ideal direction of chip flow in turning that while turning ductile material by a sharp tool, the continuous chip would flow over the tool’s rake surface and in the direction apparently perpendicular to...
