Simulation of End Milling for Weak-Rigidity Structural Parts of Aluminium Alloy in Aviation
To resolve the problem of the parts deformation because of the milling force, a finite element model (FEM) of end milling process simulation in milling force field was established. On the base of FEM, we simulate the high-speed end milling type structure of aluminum alloy 7075 parts. We successfully predict the end milling force, obtain the effect between the upper and lower material to the milling force, and Mises stress and the tool length beyond the part.The simulation results show that the lower material can increase the milling force to upper, and upper material can decrease milling force to lower layer.The drilling tool length beyond the part is about 0.5 mm .
