Abstract

Modern machinery is highly demanding and the requirement for producing high quality parts is crucial in modern engineering. The most important is the setting of dimensions and tolerances of the surfaces which work together. The shape- and position tolerances may raise the existence of failures and can affect the performance of different machinery. Consequently it is very important that the cutting process is as stable as possible in order to get the best quality parts and to achieve the maximum lifetime of the cutting tool. Unfortunately the machining of complex products from hard materials is accompanied by loss of stability of the cutting process, which leads to tool oscillations, causing an increasing wear of the cutting tools, reducing the lifetime of the machine actuators, which ultimately affects the quality and accuracy of processing responsible products. To avoid this kind of chatter vibrations it is possible to construct specialized cutting tools and tool holder witch reduce this kind of vibrations and can help to increase the manufacturing precision of machine components. In consequence of this the paper focuses on testing the utility effect of a cutting tool holder with alternate bars of different material structure in its construction. The different bars are made from rolled steel and have an anisotropic structure which also has different mechanical properties. This construction is considered as a method to improve the cutting stability of the cutting tool and helps to reduce the oscillations in the finishing turning. The method for the construction of the damper instrument holder with alternate bars is proposed.
