Analysis of Cutting Forces and Machining Error in Ball End Milling of Cylindrical Surfaces
Cutting forces and machining error in contouring of concave and convex surfaces using helical ball end mills are theoretically investigated. The cutting forces are evaluated based on the theory of oblique cutting. The machining errors resulting from the tool deflections due to these forces are evaluated at various points of the machined surface. The influence of various cutting conditions and cutting modes on machining error is investigated and discussed.
