Keywords: Thermal – Assisted machining, high hardness material, machinability


Thermal – Assisted machining (TAM) is useful machining solution to improve capacity, quality and formability of products made from high strength materials which are extremely difficult in machining by traditional processes. This method is widely used in cutting manufacture with chip formation such as turning, milling, drawing and so on; also in sheet metal forming processes. Machining assisted by heating over come conventional machining’s disadvantages with high strength materials, low thermal conductivity, good abrasion resistance, little change of mechanical properties at elevated temperatures. This paper reviews the researches in the world based on the influences of high temperatures on machinability and formability of machining assisted by heating and proposes the problems and solutions should be concentrated to study in Viet Nam.
