cutting forces, cutting temperature, orthogonal cutting, coniferous wood, broad-leaved wood,


Experimental results showed that the cutting force and cutting zone temperature of soft pine were lower than that of hard oak under the same cutting condition, and the influence degree of chip type on the cutting force of soft pine is lower than that of hard oak. Different chip formation shows little or no effect on cutting temperature in processing both soft pine and hard oak.
