Formatted Abstract/Summary
Application of polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) based cutting tools for hard rock excavation in mining and construction industries has increased significantly in recent years due to their super hardness, superb thermal conductivity and long life durability. Super Material Abrasive Resistant Tool (SMART*CUT) technology has been developed by CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) in the last 15 years, which includes the replacement of tungsten carbide (WC) tips of the conventional picks with thermally stable diamond composite (TSDC) tips, attachment of the TSDC tips to steel tool bodies with CSIRO’s worldwide patented bonding technology. The wear characteristics of TSDC cutting elements have been investigated previously. In this paper, the preliminary results of cutter forces and resultant angle of SMART*CUT picks were compared with that of traditional WC picks. A tri-axial force dynamometer and a data acquisition system were used to measure the cutter forces. Besides, the cutting area temperature during cutting process was continuously measured by a FLIR SC7600M thermal infrared camera and the recorded data were processed by Altair Software.
