The criteria for cutting performance of the diamond tool include flank wear, crater wear, workpiece surface finish, and cutting forces. Experimental results show that the natural diamond tool has superior performance compared to the artificial one as it experienced lower cutting forces and lower flank and crater wears. It was also found that the cutting tool with {110} crystal orientation at rake face performs better than the tool with {100} crystal orientation in terms of amount of wear, surface finish, and cutting forces.]]> Wed 13 Jul 2011 15:20:22 EST ]]>
