PDC cutter stresses vary with the change of the cutting angle [theta] curve as shown in Fig.
The cutting angle of substrate side and surface morphology of microlens would affect the light extraction from substrate according to the simulation results.
Since various wood grain orientations are possible (e.g., under variation in the final cutting angle of the semi-finished product), and since such changes in orientation may affect its mechanical performance, representative samples of the most common block cutting angles were tested.
Ripple technology also increases the flexibility to cut multiple wood species with the same cutting angle, as the light cutting pressure reduces pre-splitting and residual defects.
The influence of tool geometry in terms of chip formation is also studied and an equivalent cutting angle is introduced to replace the cutting radius.
A study on the influence of the sloped cutting angle on kerf width and part quality in the hot wire cutting of EPS foam for the VLM-s rapid prototyping process is also reviewed, system is based on 4-axis cutting machine, based on straight wire (Ahnetal, 2003).
The head featured on Bahco ERGO secateurs is subtly angled from the body to create the optimum cutting angle without wrist strain.
Special attention should be paid to the cutting angle of the knives and the screen used to ensure uniform particle size similar to that of virgin pellets.
The Kyon ceramic inserts are particularly well suited to milling ductile iron, and the cutter's negative cutting angle ensures smooth milling with low cutting force.
Equipped with Smart Power and a two-point cutting angle lock to keep the blade securely in place, the saw delivers cuts that are clean and accurate.
A positive cutting angle ensures a smooth cut, low cutting force, and low power consumption.
The fly half was the recipient of man and ball at the same time, but nonetheless managed to flip the ball out of the tackle to Stephenson, who ran a superb cutting angle to finish ( Wilkinson adding the conversion.
