Calculation of temperature fields during lathe machining with thermoelectric cooling by using the finite element method

The aim of this work is to explore the possibilities of the implementation of systems based on a thermoelectric module for cooling the cutting tool. This cooling becomes significant when it is not possible to use conventional coolants and lubricants. Starting from existing mathematical models for the calculation of the temperature field of the cutting tool, a mathematical model is developed that takes into account the cooling based on the thermoelectric module. The use of the finite element method determines temperature field when dry lathe machining in the cooling conditions based on the thermoelectric module. The Software package, PAK-T, is used for the calculations and was developed at the Department of Applied Mechanics, Faculty of Engineering in Kragujevac. The system for cooling the cutting tool based on the thermoelectric module was realised under laboratory conditions on a prototype model, which consists of a cutting tool and a thermoelectric module. Verification of the obtained results was carried out on the basis of a mathematical model by experimental research of the temperature field of the cutting tool in terms of cooling based on a thermoelectric module.
