A parting tool has a ground front clearance angle of $${6^0}$$ and the back rake angle of $${10^0}$$. The tool, by mistake, was set $$1.5$$ $$mm$$ above the line of centers while machining a job of $$50$$ $$mm$$ out-side diameter.

The diameter of the job at which, while parting, the tool will start rubbing

The following data apply to machining a part on turret lathe and a general purpose lathe

The setup cost and the cost for special tooling on the turret lathe would be $$Rs.3000/-.$$ These costs are negligible on the general purpose lathe. Calculate the batch seize which justifies the use of turret lathe.

Calculate the tonnage capacity of the broaching machine required to broach on the hole under the following conditions.

Diameter of the finished hole $$=75mm,$$

rise per tooth $$=0.03mm$$

Tooth pitch $$=10mm,$$

Length of the broach $$=750mm$$

Cutting speed $$=6m/min,$$

specific cutting pressure $$ = 1300 \times {t^{0.4}}\,\,N/m{m^2},$$ (Where $$t$$ is the uncut chip thickness)

If the tool and work handling time is $$0.5min,$$ estimate the production rate per hour
