Ball-End Cutter Machining Process Analysis in Five-Axis Milling
In this paper, the three dimensional geometrical analysis is depicted with the interacting relations among cutting edge, undeformed chip and shear zone along cutting direction, and a general geometrical model of five-axis machining curve surface in ball-end milling is presented. A general force model is derived, and the three dimensional cutting forces are predicted. The influences of different angle of the centerline of the cutter to the cutting forces are considered. The three dimensional cutting forces are applied to construct and analysis the structural vibratory model of the system.
