Subproject B01

Geometrical Structuring of Component Surfaces by Micro Milling

In this project micro structured cp-titanium surfaces are going to be manufactured by micro milling. Within this manufacturing, the micro milling process and especially the wear behavior of micro end mills as well as the influence of tool wear on the resulting surface morphology is investigated. Additionally, the influence of the work piece’s grain orientations and grain boundaries on the machining results are going to be studied. With the combination of these investigations, a model for micro milling processes of cp-titanium is going to be compiled, which connects the wear behavior and the influence of material properties with process parameters and the resulting surface morphology. In the future, it might be therefore possible to enhance surface quality and to further minimize the structural size.
