Machining of Copper and Copper Alloys
This article begins with a discussion on machinability ratings of copper and copper alloys and then describes the factors influencing the machinability ratings. It explains the effect of alloying elements, cold working, and cutting fluid on the machinability of copper and copper alloys. In addition, the article provides a comprehensive discussion on various machining techniques that are employed for machining of copper and copper alloys: turning, planing, drilling, reaming, tapping and threading, multiple operation machining, milling, slitting and circular sawing, power band sawing and power hacksawing, grinding, and honing.
