A Comparative Study of MRR Properties by HSS and Carbide Tool on Aluminum Alloy (AA6063) with SiC and TiO2 Novel Reinforcement Using End Milling Operation

Shaik Zaheer Abbas and Ravi Manikandan

Abstract

Aim: The objective of the investigation is to scrutinize the efficacy of high-speed steel (HSS) and carbide tools on the material removal rate (MRR) of aluminum alloy (AA6063) that has been reinforced with hybrid metal matrix composites (HMMCs) containing both silicon carbide (SiC) and titanium dioxide (TiO2).
Methodology: The stir-casting process produced the SiC and TiO2 -reinforced metal matrix composites. Two groups were involved in the experiment (total sample size n = 40), and both experimental and control groups were carried out for 20 samples (samples were made with HSS and carbide tool, respectively).
Results: The carbide tool has attained the maximum MRR value of 1654.21 mm3 /min compared to the HSS tool. This occurred at a spindle speed of 2800 rpm, a feed of 0.02 mm/rev, and a 10% weight of SiC. Based on statistical analysis, a 2-tailed value of 0.000 satisfied (p < 0.05) the condition. Additionally, a statistically significant difference between the two groups was observed. Conclusion: The mean value of the MRR from the drilled hole increased for carbide tools and decreased for HSS tools as the particle content increased. Carbide drill bits were the most effective tools tested regarding MRR.
