In order to study the material removal mechanism of Fe-C alloy surfaces in the particle microcutting process, the molecular dynamics method was used to study the material deformation and removal rules during the particle microcutting process. By analyzing and discussing the particle cutting force, atomic energy, atomic displacement, lattice structure, and dislocation in the particle microcutting process under different cutting velocities, the material removal mechanism is revealed. The results show that the atomic binding energy of Fe-C alloy increases with an increase in particle cutting velocity. The cutting force of particles and atomic potential energy of the workpiece increase obviously. The accumulated strain energy and dislocation energy in the lattice increase, the lattice deformation becomes more severe, and the material is prone to plastic deformation. The atoms form atomic groups at the front of the particle and are then remove from the surface of Fe-C alloy in the form of chips.
