Inconel 718 is one of the important alloys among all the Nickel and Nickel based alloy Inconel 718 has found its niche in many industries, owing to its unique properties. Inconel 718 material is widely used in as aircraft engine parts, steam turbine power plants, space vehicles, But due to peculiar characteristics such as lower thermal conductivity, work hardening, presence of abrasive carbide particles it difficult to machine, Cost effective machining with generation of good surface finish on the Inconel 718 components during turning operation is a challenge to the manufacturing engineers in practice. Considering all the above facts the present work aims to study the influence of different cutting parameters like cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut of super alloy Inconel 718 and AISI 52100 Steel during high speed turning. Test results were analyzed to determine the better parameters for optimal cutting during high speed machining of Inconel 718 cubic boron nitride tool. A parametric model of cutting tool and work piece is designed using 3D modelling software Pro/Engineer. Analytical investigations are to be made on the model by applying the forces by taking different values of cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut. Analysis is done in Ansys.
