Research of Cutter Geometric Parameter Effect on Machining Stability Area in High Speed Milling Process
In this paper, modal analysis of ball end mills is modeled by finite element to work out natural frequency and chatter model in tooling system and to calculate the limit curve of stability in single degree freedom system. The effect of cutter flute length and cutter tooth number on limit curve of stability in single degree freedom system is also discussed. The research results show that steady critical cutting depth of milling system declines while the cutter flute length increases, but the trend is not linear, which shows increase partly. An engineering optimization design is made on milling cutter geometrical parameters based on this conclusion.
