ABSTRACT
The article presents selected issues related to the process of turning samples made of the AlSi10Mg alloy with the use of various manufacturing technologies, i.e. casting and DMLS (Direct Metal Laser Sintering). Machining processes of cylindrical surfaces of samples made with these two methods were subjected to a comparative analysis. The main idea behind the research was to develop guidelines for turning parts obtained using laser powder sintering. Study on the influence of cutting parameters on the value of breakability index Cin. as well as the type, shape and form of chips produced during longitudinal turning is presented. The chips were also measured and the results of the microscopic analysis of the chips form are described. Results showed that the values of Cin index for turning of the cast AlSi10MG alloy depend mainly on the value of feed f. According to adopted chip classification for the feed value of f > 0.1 mm/rev the chips had a favorable, short form. In the case of turning the sample obtained by the DMLS method, the values of the chip breakability index Cin are not significantly dependent on the adopted ranges of cutting parameters. The Taguchi method was used to develop the conclusions obtained on the basis of the research results.
