Turning rig for in-situ studies during a cutting operation

Model studies provide valuable information about material properties such as thermal stability, but in-situ studies during cutting operations are needed to understand the evolution of coatings during operation. We have designed a custom turning rig for high energy x-ray scattering studies, which allows us to study the coating, substrate, and work piece material during in-situ turning operations using industrially relevant cutting conditions.

In end of June we successfully conducted the first in-situ studies of the tool using our custom built turning rig. The image shows the turning rig in operation at beamline P07, Petra III and one of the diffraction patterns collected in-situ during turning.
