- Turning is widely employed as a material removal process for roughing or semi-finishing operation. However, turning of a workpiece material needs use of an appropriate cutting tool insert. Insert material and its geometry play quite significant role in obtaining desired machinability. For obtaining better finish of machined surface, nose radius also plays an important role. In the present work, two coated carbide cutting tool inserts with two different nose radii of 1.2 mm and 1.6 mm are used under two cutting velocity and four feed of low values to explore machinability of AISI 4340 steel during turning in dry condition. Type of chip formation, cutting forces required, etc. are noted during the experiment. The condition corresponding to good machinability is finally recommended.
