When the pocket in die and mould is machined by high speed milling (HSM), the cutting forces increase and vibration fluctuates at the pocket corner because of the sudden change of cutting direction in general. It will cause serious wear and possible breakage of cutting tool, and poor quality of parts. By means of experiments, the cutting forces and vibration at the pocket corner with different HSM conditions are measured. The results show that the sharper pocket corner, higher cutting speeds, larger feed rate per tooth and radial depth of cut, will result in increasing of cutting forces and vibration amplitude. Thus, it will lead to be unstable during the process of high speed milling pocket corner.
