Experimental Study for the Optical Cutting Tool Path of High Speed Milling Al-Alloy
In this paper, on the aim of control the fluctuation of cutting force, five kind of commonly used tool paths which were used to milling curved surface were selected to study the optical cutting tool path of high speed milling al-alloy, the results showed that in order to make the fluctuation of cutting force smallest, the tool path which had the more even line spacing along the Machining surface should be chosen according to the characteristic of the Machining surface. In order to minimize the cutting force, the direction with the biggest surface curvature should be chosen, and the direction with the smallest change rate of the surface curvature should be chosen in order to minimize the fluctuations of cutting force.
