PART – B    (10 X 2 = 20Marks )


1.         Calculate the lathe spindle speed in RPM to turn a 20 mm diameter bar stock at a              cutting speed of 30 M/min.

2.         An engine lathe has a square the threaded single start lead screw of 3 mm pitch. Determine the speed ratio between the main spindle and lead screw to machine a TWO Start 6 mm pitch screw in this machine.

3.         What is the objective of incorporating the clapper box mechanism in the tool head of a shaping machine.                                                                                                    

4          List the factors included in a grinding wheel specification.

5.         One of the index plate of Brown and Sharp milling machine has the following hole circles : 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20.

How much the index crank of the dividing head has to be rotated to mill each            tooth of a spur gear of 24 teeth using suitable hole circle?

6.        A helical gear of helix angle B (Right hand) is to be machined in a gear hobbing machine using a hob cutter of helix angle of A (also of Right hand). What is the angle through which the hob cutter has to be tilted during machining?.

7.         What is the function of combination tool holder in a turret lathe?

8.         Point out one salient difference between single spindle automat and multispindle automat in their working.

9.         During orthogonal machining with a cutting tool having a 10 deg. Positive rake angle, the chip thickness is measured to be 0.4 mm for a depth of cut of 0.2 mm. Determine the shear plane angle.

10.       List the four important functions of cutting fluid in the metal machining.
