Measurement and Analysis of Cutting Force and Optimization of Cutting Parameters by High Speed Milling
The measurement method and apparatus of cutting force by high speed milling is introduced. The high speed milling force of wrought aluminum alloy is measured and analyzed through separately examining the influences of various factors, such as cutting speed, cutting depth, milling width, feed per cutting tooth, down or up milling, cooling and lubricating. The results match with outcomes from other’s tests and the theory of metal cutting, and are close to the calculated force values, so that the test can be regarded as positive. It is pointed out that high cutting speed, little cutting depth, properly great working engagement and feed per tooth, high feed rate, down milling and efficient cooling and lubricating should be used to reduce cutting force and deformation, to improve milling accuracy and efficiency, which can be helpful to the spread applications of High Speed Machining.
