An Experimental Study on the Impact on Vari-Speed Milling to the Capacity Machine Tool


Article Preview

The axial limit cutting depth(LCD) of constant speed were studied, and the stability lobes were gotten by expriments and simulation. The vari-speed milling selected various parameters was investigated by expriments,also.The experimental results show that varying speed milling approach improves the limit cutting depth on proper time and prope parameters selection. According to the comparative analysis of the exprimental results of constant speed and vari-speed milling, it was obtained whether the varying speed milling approach was to be chosen and how to select proper parameters, should be reference to the stability lobes of constant speed.
