The temperatures that develop in a machining process have a decisive effect on the workpiece quality and the production rate achieved, and even on the number of machine downtimes that occur.
All forms of tool wear are directly affected by the combined effects of the mechanical and the thermal load the tool is subjected to. The temperatures can be estimated by taking account of the thermodynamic exchange between the tool, workpiece and chips.
Knowledge of how the thermal energy balance functions in a machining process is a fundamental tool in the toolbox of the modern professional machining technologist.
