Numerical Simulation Study of High-Speed Milling Thin-Wall Part
According to the weak rigidity characteristics of thin-walled parts, the material parameters and deformation tools are taken into account. In this paper, the finite element model of high-speed milling process is systematically studied by a large-scale finite element analysis (FEA) software DEFORM-3D with the modified Johnson-Cook model. The simulated results of cutting force, chip morphology, effective stress, effective strain and cutting temperature in deformation zones of thin-wall part are analyzed. On the basis of simulation results, cutting force of high speed milling on thin-wall part is verified. Comparing to the experimental results, the simulated results of cutting force, chip morphology, effective stress and cutting temperature in deformation zones of high speed peripheral milling indicate good consistence and the models established can be used to accurately predict the thin wall deformation. Therefore, numerical simulation method for the thin wall milling deformation control and provide a new way of compensation.
