Course Objectives In this course it is aimed that the students learn the metal cutting theory to become able to apply it; have sufficient knowledge about the cutting tools, cutting fluids and the cutting conditions and how these affect the performance of the machining operations and become able to optimize the machining operations for the selected criteria.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • The student will master the metal cutting terminology and the basic theory of metal cutting and learn how to apply.
  • The student will develop the ability to determine the amount of heat generated and the temperatures in the deformation zones and calculate the required power for machining operations
  • The student will master the basic knowledge about the cutting tools, cutting fluids and the cutting parameters and how they affect the cutting performance
  • The student will have the ability to determine the optimization parameters, construct the optimization model and find the optimum cutting conditions for metal cutting operations
  • The student will acquire the fundamentals of computer aided manufacturing
Course Content Machine tools and metal cutting operations, metal cutting mechanics, cutting temperatures, cutting tools: materials and geometry, tool wear and tool life, cutting fluids, economics of metal cutting operations, introduction to computer-aided manufacturing.
