Influences on Burr Size During Face-Milling of Aluminum Alloys and Cast Iron
- Author(s): Shefelbine, Wendy

The Exit Order Sequence (EOS) theory discussed by previous LMA students predicts the size of burrs formed during face milling. Other influences are tool geometry, coolant use, and material properties in aluminum silicon alloys and cast iron. Used, worn tools also increase the size of the burr. The effect of speed and feed are also discussed, particularly with regards to cast iron.
