ABSTRACT

An experimental study was performed to investigate effects of operating variables on
the cutting force (CF) acting on diamond sawblade in stone sawing. Multi-variable
linear regression analysis was also carried out to determine dominant operating
variables affecting the CF. In the experimentations, a computer controlled block cutter
was used and the experiments were performed with the same-direction cutting mode.
The results showed that higher CFs were obtained for higher cutting depth and traverse
speed, and for lower peripheral speed and flow rate of cooling fluid. The cutting depth
was determined as the most significant operating variable affecting the CF.
