Dynamic Study of Thin Wall Part Turning


Article Preview

The numerical simulation of machining process is a key factor in the control of parts machining process. Its development aims at improving the process reliability and reduces the time spent during the process planning stage. In this context, we use a specific time domain simulation allowing modeling the dynamics of a thin wall part turning operation. After having introduced the basics of the proposed approach we present a specific cutting test that has been designed to specifically measure and control the dynamics of the part and the cutting conditions of a finishing toolpath. The influences of the cutting speed and damping coefficient on the chatter occurrence are discussed. In order to better control the simulation uses, an analysis of the simulation parameters influences on the simulated results is proposed.
