The heavy load deflection angle milling head is an important functional component of 5-axis CNC machine tool, which is used for large and complex free-form surface processing. The characteristics of this kind of milling head are implementing multiple degrees of freedom motion with revolution and deflection angle simultaneously. Obtaining milling head dynamic and static characteristics is a pre-requisite problem to resolve for the development and research of heavy load deflection angle milling head independently. Dynamic characteristics are obtained through combination with CAE (Computer-aided Engineering) technique and experiment validation. For CAE analysis, the main parts of milling head are glued together considering milling head operating at a specific position. Experimental validation is carried through with initial fixing constraint style, which validates the correctness of CAE technique. Experimental and CAE analysis results are compared and analyzed. Therefore, exact dynamic characteristics of milling head and unsubstantial segments and its influence factors are gotten. Static characteristic is obtained considering milling head operating in different posture by CAE technique. The analytical method of three points at half of cutter are loaded is introduced. Calculated results indicate that the deformation of tool tip is the largest when milling head operating in 45° posture, which corresponds with the deformation situation of the milling head operating in workshop. The analytical results of dynamic and static characteristics of milling head provide theoretical and experimental support for structure optimization and improving of heavy load deflection angle milling head.
